WSJ Speakeasy premieres my new track “Be Your Man” today from my new album ‘Apache’ out on July 15. I’m loving all the songs and I’m ready to do them on live gigs. I play them over and over, and each time I’m as excited as the last. I can’t wait until my fans can get to hear it. The record is some of my poetry put to music, and a couple written by Eric Krasno & David Gutter who arranged the whole album. Get ready for Apache.

I would like to say a few words about my friend, the great Allen Toussaint. I want to first thank him for believing in me during my early days of singing. He produced my first recordings back in 1960 to 1964, on Minit Records. He also recorded songs for my brother Art. Later in 1972, he recorded me again with songs like “The Greatest Love” and “Hercules.” He was an icon in the music business. He was a great humanitarian. He and I co founded New Orleans Artists Against Hunger and Homelessness (NOAAHH) back in 1985 and he was scheduled to do a benefit concert with Paul Simon in December for the organization’s 30th anniversary. I know he is loved by a lot of people from New Orleans and around the world for helping them in their careers. He was a great person and a great songwriter and producer. But most of all he was a gentleman. And he will be missed by the music world, my heart is sad. His family is in my prayers.

It’s been a long road to recovery after Hurricane Katrina, but the soul of New Orleans lives. 10 years after the storm, I spoke with TakePart.com about why I take part in rebuilding New Orleans, and of course music’s role in the resilience of New Orleans culture.

God bless my brothers, they meant so much to my life
I wish them all the best, the times we spent growing up together, the toil and the strife
I hope we gave each other comfort up and down the road. Helped each other tote the heavy loads
I can think back, and it makes me smile. A whole lotta fun, a whole lotta miles
Made a whole lot of people happy, with the great music we played
Gigging with people like the stones, Santana, the Grateful Dead
We were out there for thirty some years, leaving a funky trail
Through the blood sweat and tears, it was our Holy Grail
Looking at each other across the stage, through every song, through every page
I could see my Father and my Mother in each of my brothers
The kindness they taught us, the love and respect they brought us
I wish them nothing but the best, ‘cause they deserve nothing less
Want them to know that I love them, never no one above them
From the Calliope to the Thirteenth Ward, to them may nothing be hard
But as we got older the road got bolder
It was no ones fault, it was just time for me to call a halt
You’re in my prayers wherever you are, you’ll always be my favorite stars
To my brothers, the Mighty Mighty Neville Brothers
