Soul veteran Bobby Womack is soon to release a new album entitled ‘The Bravest Man In The Universe’, his first original record since 1994.

Featuring guest vocals by Lana Del Rey on album track ‘Dayglo Reflection’, it comes co-produced by Damon Albarn – with whom Womack previously collaborated on Gorillaz single ‘Stylo’ – and Richard Russell, boss of XL Recordings, who will oversee the long player’s release on 11 Jun. Russell’s blog states that Womack’s LP cut ‘Stupid’ samples part of a monologue by Gil Scott-Heron, whose final album ‘I’m New Here’ the XL chief also supervised.
