This exclusive clip shows The Kinks legend Ray Davies in the recording studio with Paloma Faith as the pair record vocals on a cover of 'Lola'.

When Davies released the details of forthcoming LP 'See My Friends' -- a collection of collaborative Kinks re-recordings -- he revealed a panoply of established artists who had been keen to work with him, from classic artists like Bruce Springsteen to relative newcomers like Mumford and Sons.

Among the more eye-catching names on the list was undoubtedly 25-year-old Faith, whose glossy vocals and extravagant taste in fashion has evidently caught Davies' eye since her debut album 'Stone Cold Sober' was released in 2009.

Davies said of the album: "With some tracks I had to appreciate the style of the other artists, otherwise it would have sounded unbalanced. And I wanted the album to work as an entire listening experience but each track had a life of its own."

Judge for yourself whether he succeeded here.
