EDITORS’ NOTES

Recorded after Damon Albarn spurred the soul great’s return to music as a guest in Gorillaz, Bobby Womack’s final album evokes his past glories while sounding contemporary. Musical settings range from the title track’s symphonic trip-hop to the eerie electro-gospel of “If There Wasn’t Something There” to a haunting duet with Lana Del Rey on “Dayglo Reflection.” But for all their variety, the songs keep Womack’s weathered yet impassioned voice front and center, ensuring he gets the swan song he deserves.
