One of the most distinctive voices in music belongs to a man who could make the world stop, and this week the title track to his new album, The Bravest Man in the Universe, cased quite a stir online.

From Pitchfork to Earmilk, Bobby Womack has been the single artist who people can’t stop talking about – so we thought why not dedicate an hour of this week’s Now Playing to the soul legend.

With more albums than I have years under my belt, Womack is a true music icon and there’s a plethora of music for us to choose from.
• Your favourite Womack tracks, whether it’s some of his classics like Across 110th Street or California Dreamin’ through to B-sides and rarities.
• People he’s worked with which ranges from Janis Joplin to Mos Def and Aretha Franklin, Ronnie Wood and Chaka Khan.
• How about XL artists as Richard Russell has co-produced the record and it’s coming out on the label.
• Through to all the other great voices from R&B and soul like Otis Redding, Curtis Mayfield or Sly Stone.

As always the playlist is up to you – let us know what you want to hear by leaving a request on our Facebook page or this blog, e-mail or Tweet us using #Womack6Music or drag tracks onto our collaborative Spotify playlist.

And remember to tune in from 6pm on Sunday to join in the conversation.
