America, says Ray Davies, you really got me.

The Englishman and Kinks co-founder will once again pay tribute to life in the U.S.A. on his next solo album, "Our Country: Americana Act II," available June 29.

The new record is a sequel to "Americana," the 2017 album inspired by his 2013 memoir of the same name.

The 19 songs on "Our Country" include reworked versions of the 1971 Kinks track "Oklahoma U.S.A" and "The Real World,' the final cut on Davies' 20007 solo album "Working Man's Café."

The "Lola" singer's sixth solo venture "follows my journey across America," he said in a statement, "through endless tours not just to reclaim the Kinks' career, but to rediscover the country that offered me my earliest inspirations."

Davies, 73, also reports that he's working on "a theatre/film piece" based on "Americana" and "Our Country."
