Last week, legendary soul singer Bobby Womack quietly dropped an expanded edition of last year’s Damon Albarn-produced The Bravest Man in the Universe. The new release sports four unheard tracks, specifically “It’s Been a Long Night”, “Hold the River Down”, “Central Avenue”, and “Please Forgive My Heart” (Funk Version).
In celebration, XL Records has issued a video for “It’s Been a Long Night”, stuffing rolls of unseen studio footage featuring Albarn, TV On The Radio’s Jaleel Bunton, and an assortment of other musicians. It’s a tad dusty, so don’t be surprised if you go reaching for a tissue. Watch it below.
Earlier this year, Womack was diagnosed with early stage Alzheimer’s.
