May 29, 2012 SOUNDS ⁄  DAYGLO BO-WO


Co-produced by animated simian Damon Albarn and XL commander-in-chief, Richard Russell, Dayglo Reflection sees Big C-beating badman Bobby Womack duet with Lana Del Rey  - and opens with a sample of soul music pioneer Sam Cooke musing about life.

Sam helped launch Bobby’s career and, upon his death in ’64, Womack and his Wo-bro, Cecil, married Sam’s widow and daughter respectively. Lock up your wives…and daughters… and sisters… and the neighbour with the buns that won’t quit: the cat with 42 lives is back.

[Bobby Womack's first original LP in 18 years, the meekly titled The Bravest Man in the Universe, is out on XL records come June 11th.]
