Soul King Bobby Womack confirmed for Way Out West 2012! In addition to classic songs such as "Across 110th Street," "Woman's Gotta Have It," and "Lookin' For A Love" we can look forward to brand new songs from Womack's upcoming album The Bravest Man in the Universe which will be released in June. The album is produced by Damon Albarn from Blur and features collaborations with artists such as Lana Del Rey.
California's finest Best Coast are also confirmed to the main festival site - Slottsskogen.
We can also confirm one more name to Stay Out West: Brooklyn's Here We Go Magic.
Jimi Hendrix was one of those inspired by Womack's unique guitar style, The Rolling Stones' first number-one hit, "It's All Over Now," is an early Womack song, and Janis Joplin's version of "Trust Me" is hard to forget. He has played with Ray Charles, King Curtis, and Aretha Franklin; played guitar with Sly & The Family Stone; collaborated with Gorillaz; and was one of Wilson Pickett favorite songwriters. And the list goes on.
