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 launched another act with 'The Bravest Man in the Universe', the Damon Albarn-produced comeback album that made several best-of lists.

Alzheimer's is a degenerative brain disease characterised by memory loss. It is the latest health problem for the 68-year-old singer, who has also been fighting cancer.
