The track is taken from Womack’s new album ‘The Bravest Man In The Universe’, which has been co-produced by Blur’s Damon Albarn and is released next month.
The album, which will come out on June 11, was recorded at the Blur man’s Studio 13 in West London with XL Records boss Richard Russell.
Speaking to NME about the sessions earlier this year, Womack discussed working with Lana Del Rey on ‘Dayglo Reflection’ describing the pair as being like “two people in a church”. He added: “She’s one of a kind. I’ve never sung with a girl like that before.”
The album is soul singer Womack’s first LP of original material in 18 years, following 1994’s ‘Resurrection’. The album will be released on the XL label, also home to Adele and The xx.
Womack recently revealed that he has been given the all-clear from colon cancer, after being diagnosed with the illness in March.
A posting on the soul singer’s Facebook page last week said that surgery to remove a tumour was successful and Womack was expected to make a full recovery.
The singer is due to play two UK gigs next month – one at London’s Heaven on June 14, followed by a slot at the capital’s Lovebox festival two days later (16).
