The release date is being reported as either Spring or April/May; however, it should be out before late May as he will be touring the U.S. in support of the set. The album is Davies’ sixth solo album and first since Fractured Mindz (2007).

The City Winery site in New York City shows him appearing on May 28 with the following in the press blurb about the upcoming album:

Dave’s new album I Will Be Me is a return to his groundbreaking guitar sound and innovative songwriting. His classically English voice shows off a new deepness but still hits his famous high notes in this collection. Hard rocking track Living in the Past, takes a look at obsession with retro but, ever the Mod, Dave surprises with the lyric, “no matter what they do or say, the future’s here to stay!”

He takes a look back with Little Green Amp, a playful, punk homage to days when his jagged, blues driven sound wave ripped ahead of the British Invasion through stereos the world over. Cote du Rhone (I Will Be Me), an uncensored look at ugliness in the world today, is as angry and biting as ever with an innovative heavy yet slide guitar tone. Soothing lyrics and sounds of Jonathan Lea’s sitar playing on Healing Boy – show Dave’s sensitive side. In a recent radio interview he said,”rock music is a positive force for good.” This hopeful and optimistic vision manifests and bridges themes personal, social and universal in I Will Be Me.

The track list:

  • Little Green Amp
  • Livin’ In The Past
  • The Healing Boy
  • Midnight In LA
  • In The Mainframe
  • Energy Fields
  • When I First Saw You
  • The Actress
  • Erotic Neurotic
  • You Can Break My Heart
  • Walker Through The Worlds
  • Remember The Future
  • Cote du Rhone (I Will Be Me)
