out of stock

at times naked & intimate, with womack bluesing over a ragged acoustic, at others unleashing soulful howls whilst disembodied amongst fearlessly inventive electronic soundscapes, this is a remarkable work.

the sublime return of the soul legend was produced by Damon Albarn & XL’s Richard Russell, & consequently echoes the feel of gil scott-heron's final lp. It even features contributions from the late scott-heron, & appearances by Fatoumata Diawara & Lana Del Rey. "The album, which sets Womack's careworn voice & acoustic guitar against clattering electronics, & mixes old gospel songs with guest appearances by Lana Del Rey, is a triumph. It may even be as magnificent as all the other magnificent albums Womack has released." - the guardian.
