The Kinks’ could be getting back together and this brings a big smile to our face.

Ray Davies has said in an interview he wants to work on new material with his brother Dave, which is huge as the two have not worked together since The Kinks split in 1996.

He told News Of The World “I suggested he do some low-key shows to see how well he can play. If we’re going to play together again, we can’t hit the road straight away with a big-time announcement,”

“But, if┬áDave feels good about it and there’s good new material that we can write, it’ll happen.”

Ray also revealed that he is planning to release an album of duets in 2010 with the record due in May.
