Listen to Bobby Womack's New Album

Posted By on Fri, Jun 8, 2012 at 1:50 PM


Bobby Womack is cancer-free and has new music out. Those are two wonderful things.

NPR is streaming "The Bravest Man in the Universe" right now, and we heartily encourage you to click over this very minute (or sometime this weekend, we guess, if you're workplace is anti-streaming or something lame like that) and listen.

Here's a snippet from our review, which will run in next week's issue.

"The 68-year-old Cleveland native and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer has never sounded so ingrained with the music as he does on The Bravest Man in the Universe, his first album of new material in almost 20 years. The focus is on Womack’s warm, worn voice, aged to a soulful rasp that gives songs like “Please Forgive My Heart” and the title tune the gravity and sense of history they call for."

Oh, and there's a duet with Lana Del Rey. Intrigued? You should be.
