New Release: Bobby Womack – ‘The Bravest Man In The Universe’

 

Bobby Womack today releases his first album in a good little minute, The Bravest Man In The Universe. One may choose to call the Damon Albarn and Richard Russell produced album “an electronic secular gospel album,” but we just call it awesome.

Listeners can look forward to songwriting collaborations with Harold Payne and vocal appearances by Lana Del Rey and Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara. Some true next level business here.

Below, check out the retro outerspace inspired video for “Whatever Happened To The Times,” which dropped today!

Also, please note that our annual SummerStage concert in NYC with Bobby has been postponed due to a recent and successful surgery. Stay tuned for more details on the new date.
