Watch: Bobby Womack, Damon Albarn, Richard Russell Chat About The Bravest Man in the Universe

Pitchfork.tv recently sat down with Bobby Womack, Damon Albarn, and XL Recordings' Richard Russell to discuss the making of Womack's album The Bravest Man in the Universe, which Albarn and Russell produced.

This interview clip comes in advance of a special presentation of performances of several Universe songs, performed live in New York by Womack, Albarn, and Russell. Stay tuned to Pitchfork.tv for those videos.

Comparing the creative process to his previous recording experience, Womack said:

I got to know freedom and a lot of things I never had a chance to try when I was recording, and I had been with a lot of companies. It was in the days [when] you had to cut two albums a year. They would be asking me-- "if you had a hit record, cut one like that record you just cut." How can you grow?

Damon Albarn explained how he teamed with Womack and described their initial sessions:

I managed to contact Bobby and we had a conversation and agreed to meet in New York. I had the raw, basic track and put it on. Bobby almost immediately started singing… and kept on singing… and singing. For me it was incredible. Every time the phrases came up they got stronger and stronger. But it just kept going and going. It was going towards an hour and I was like... I don't want this to stop because this is a dream come true. But at the same time… it has been an hour [laughs].
