The Return of Bobby Womack- new album produced by Damon Albarn 2012

The latest issue of Mojo (with New Order in the cover) featured some articles on Rocket Juice And The Moon, Damon Albarn's new supergroup band (with Flea and co.) and Bobby Womack's new album, titled The Bravest Man In The Universe. 

Womack said some interesting things about his new album, and said his newest album is "all about history, building on the past, looking back to what I've done before but challenging myself too". 

He also said "I've been disillusioned with the business but meeting Damon inspired me". Seems like a great collaboration team, the two! 

The album will be released in March 12th 2012.
