Resurgent soul icon Bobby Womack is set to perform at this year's Latitude.
One of the founding voices in what would become known as soul music, Bobby Womack's return last year was a truly beautiful story. Hooking up with a new generation of musicians, this iconic artist appeared to be re-invogorated by the fresh, surprising influences being thrown in his direction.
A former Clash Magazine cover star (read that feature HERE), Bobby Womack has confirmed plans for an appearance at Latitude this summer.
Live performances from the soul singer have been sporadic, with Womack having endured a number of health issues last year. However the R&B icon has been given the all clear, and will take recent album 'The Bravest Man In The Universe' to Southwold forest in July.
Part of a wave of new additions, Bobby Womack will be joined by shoegaze newcomers Coves and digital soulman Gabriel Bruce. Squeeze songwriter Glenn Tilbrook is set to take part, with other new names on the line up including comedian and multiple marathon runner Eddie Izzard.
Latitude runs between July 18th - 21st.
