More information: The original plan was to release a double album called Backseat Drivers this year. The concept behind Backseat Drivers was to have two separate styles on one album. Ray has written and produced a whole album with more acoustic tracks and another one with full electric arrangements. However, two separate albums are now scheduled. The first album, Song For A Friend, will be released first and contains 10 tracks. This album has an acoustic atmosphere and reduced arrangements, and Ray dedicates this album to a close friend, who died in 2015.
In October 2016 another album will be released. It will be called Makes Me Think Of Home and is a rockier counterpart.
