Man, does XL Recordings do a great job or what? After releasing a stellar comeback album from Gil Scott-Heron in 2010, the label has moved on to veteran singer-songwriter Bobby Womack. After doing some work with Gorillaz, Womack moved into the studio to create more modern sounding music with that signature voice of his. With co-producers Damon Albarn and Richard Russell behind him, Womack rides the synth-driven sounds with his rough voice like a pro. Well, he is a professional after all, one of the best ever in fact. The Bravest Man in the Universe is due out June 11 in the United Kingdom and June 12 in the United States via XL Recordings.
