Bobby Caldwell and Jack Splash Prep LP as Cool Uncle, Share Song with Jessie Ware
Published Oct 14, 2015Bobby Caldwell's 1978 single "What You Won't Do for Love" has been covered many times over the years, most recently by Canadian electronic duo Junior Boys. Now, Caldwell has a new claim to fame: he has started a project called Cool Uncle with hotly tipped producer Jack Splash.
Splash is a Grammy winner whose credits include Kendrick Lamar, Alicia Keys, Christina Aguilera and many more. He and Caldwell's self-titled debut as Cool Uncle will be out on November 13 through Fresh Young Minds.
The album features Jessie Ware (who has also covered "What You Won't Do for Love"), plus returning Splash collaborators Cee-Lo and Mayer Hawthorne.
See the 15-song tracklist below. Scroll past that to hear the Ware-featuring "Break Away," a classic-sounding soul-funk number that warns off potential lovers. Ware sings a verse halfway through.
