Bobby Womack has died aged 70. While the cause of death is yet to be confirmed, Womack had suffered from colon cancer and Alzheimer's disease.

The legendary soul singer's last album was 2012's brilliant The Bravest Man In The Universe, though his final studio album, The Best Is Yet To Come, is scheduled for a release later this year via XL Recordings.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this tough time.
