To celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Kinks Are The Village Green Preservation Society, a number of reissues are due to be released on October 26th. Amongst the tracks on the standard CD and super deluxe boxset is a previously unreleased track, Time Song, which you can stream below.

Ray Davies explains: "I think The Village Green Preservation Society is about the ending of a time personally for me in my life," says Ray. "In my imaginary village. It's the end of our innocence, our youth. Some people are quite old but in the Village Green, you're never allowed to grow up. I feel the project itself as part of a life cycle. When we played a concert at Drury Lane in '73 to "celebrate" us about to join what was called The Common Market, I decided to use the song as a warning that time was running out for the old British Empire. This song was recorded a few weeks later but never made the final cut on the Preservation Act I album. Oddly enough, the song seems quite poignant and appropriate to release at this time in British history, and like Europe itself the track is a rough mix which still has to be finessed."
