David Bowie has written the sleeve notes for a new Kinks compilation.

The 48-track double album, The Essential Kinks, will be released on October 14 in North America and is a celebration of the band’s 50th anniversary.

In a statement on his website, Bowie has released an excerpt from the sleeve notes with an image of him with Ray Davies captioned, “I’ve never heard a Kinks song that I didn’t like”.

“Of course, from their noisy and brash beginnings, The Kinks have come to stand for some of the most enduring and heart-clutching pop of all time. They are in the gut of every British songwriter who followed them and are indisputably a cornerstone of everything pop and rock. I love ’em. The world loves ’em.”

Bowie has previously released two Kinks covers: “Where Have All The Good Times Gone” in 1973 and “Waterloo Sunset” in 2003.
