The Kinks are looking to possibly reunite, and are working on new material together, front man Ray Davies has told BBC News.

The singer says that they have started writing songs but “It depends if there’s good music. We want good new music. I’d like to do it as a more collaborative thing than we used to do.”

The Kinks last performed in 1996, and are one the only popular bands from the 60s whose founding members are still alive.

Davies has also spoken about making another album, collaborating on duets with other musicians such as Razorlight‘s Johnny Borrell and Snow Patrol as well
as discovering new talent to work with.

Davies said: “I don’t just want to do usual suspects. I’d love
to do something with Johnny, but I’d like to find new bands.
Unsigned even. I usually like the underdogs.”
