The Follower - Any Time 2020 (featuring Anytime by The Kinks) - a brand new Ray Davies’ remix / medley titled ‘The Follower - Any Time 2020 Feat: Anytime by The Kinks’
Available to Stream / Download: https://thekinks.lnk.to/AnyTime2020ID
Originally written by Ray as a possible B-side for ‘Apeman’, the track includes previously unreleased versions and excerpts of several Kinks tracks from the Lola album as well as added spoken word and sound effects. It is a concept piece about which Ray states “The isolation caused by Coronavirus can give people time to re-evaluate the world and re-assess their lives. Music can comfort the lonely, transcend time and it’s not the future or the past, yesterday, today or tomorrow. It’s anytime”. He adds, “I saw a way of making this unreleased 1970s track connect to an audience in 2020. I also saw a way of showing that music can time-travel, that memory is instantaneous and therefore can join us in the ‘now’. I put this together as something surreal then realised that it was really happening. The song has found its place - after its 50th Birthday!”

Lola Versus Powerman and the Moneygoround, Part One, commonly abbreviated to Lola Versus Powerman, or just Lola, is the eighth studio album by The Kinks, recorded and released in 1970. A concept album ahead of its time, it’s a satirical appraisal of the music industry, including song publishers, unions, the press, accountants, business managers, and life on the road. One of the all-time classic Kinks albums.
Although it appeared during a transitional period for The Kinks, Lola Versus Powerman was a success both critically and commercially for the group, charting in the Top 40 in America and helping restore them in the public eye, making it a "comeback" album. It contained two hit singles: ‘Lola’, which reached the #9 US, #2 UK and Germany - becoming the Kinks' biggest success since ‘Sunny Afternoon’ in 1966 - and ‘Apeman’, which peaked at #5 in the UK and Germany.
