Womack teams up with Stevie Wonder and Rod Stewart on new album

Bobby Womack plans to work with Damon Albarn again on his new album which will feature collaborations with Stevie Wonder, Rod Stewart and Snoop Dogg.

The 69-year-old soul singer who made a dazzling comeback last year with The Bravest Man in the Universe, says he is going back into the studio with Albarn and Richard Russell, head of Adele and Vampire Weekend's label XL Recordings, in the new year.

Despite battles with cancer and a recent Alzheimer's diagnosis, Womack said in an interview with hip-hop and alternative music website Okayplayer, "I feel great but like a great boxer goin' out, and he can't box … I lost my sharpness, I lost my skills, you know?

"I told Damon and Richard that whenever they're available to record I will make myself available. But I was already working on a new album, I have Stevie Wonder on it, I have Rod Stewart, Levert, Snoop Dogg is on it, this lady from Motown – now what was her name?"
