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.
