Mobile Mondays featuring Bobby Womack's 'The Bravest Man In The Universe' Album
Monday, June 11
Bowery Electric, New York NY
The weekly no nonsense party purveyors Mobile Mondays present a listening party for Bobby Womack's The Bravest Man In The Universe.
The Bravest Man In The Universe is Bobby Womack's first album of original material in eighteen years. It was co-produced by Damon Albarn and XL Recordings' Richard Russell and recorded in three main sessions between October and December 2011; two were in Damon's Studio 13 in West London, and the other was in New York's Manhattan Center, which is situated above the legendary Hammerstein Ballroom, with a few extra sessions in London at the XL Studio and Richard's own home studio. All eleven tracks are co-written by the three plus Bobby's longtime songwriting partner Harold Payne, except for radically rearranged spirituals "Deep River" and "Jubilee (Don't Let Nobody Turn You Around)." There are striking vocal guest spots from Lana Del Rey on "Dayglo Refelection" and Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara on "Nothin' Can Save You."
