He said the diagnosis came after he began having difficulty remembering his songs and the names of people he has worked with.

The soul singer has cut a wide path through the music business as a performer and songwriter in his 50-year career.

He recently issued The Bravest Man In The Universe, a Damon Albarn-produced comeback album which made several best-of lists.

Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain disease by memory loss.

It is the latest health problem for the 68-year-old singer, who has also been fighting cancer.
