Bobby Womack - 'The Bravest Man In the Universe' LP/'Please Forgive My Heart' Preview

Holy moly! 
Damon Albarn and Richard Russell team up with soul/funk legend Bobby Womack on his forthcoming XL Recordings long player 'The Bravest Man In the Universe'.

Set to be released in June this year, safe to say I am now really excited this Friday.
Check out the sparse and beautiful teaser single 'Please Forgive My Heart' and download to your *ahem, content.

P.S. Here are a couple of other notable Bobby Womack performances to bump while you wait.

Knxwledge - 'Hexual.Sealings.Vol.2'

Knxwledge has taken Nas' classic "Don't sleep cos sleep is the cousin of death" literally I think.
This guy is a bonafide beat-a-holic, releasing so much of his lo-fi beat heat that my mind boggles.

To be honest, some of it is half finished ideas just put out into the ether, but some of it is beautiful, original genius work. I'm definitely thinking his Hexual.Sealings LP from July 2011.

This Musiq Soulchild remix/edit being one of my favourite jams of 2011...

Seriously, dude is so prolific that since that album he has released another 15 EP's and LP's (that I know of)!
Some dope remixes of some classics right here.
