We got to sit down and catch up with  Grammy-award winning Aaron Neville from The Neville Brothers. He gave us the skinny on  the new album APACHE as well as other projects he's working on.

Tell us about your new album "APACHE."
It's the best. It's a project that I've been wanting to do for a while and got a chance to use some of my poetry. I write poetry on my iPhone. I hooked up with Eric Krasno and David Gutter and they helped me to put the music together for it and it was a labor of love all around.

Is this the first time you got to write most of the music on your album?
Yes it is, I've written before but it was like a song her and a song there. I wrote all of them except "Be Your Man," Eric wrote and "I Wanna Love You," that's his song too. But everything else is from my pen, from my phone.

It's been 50 years since your hit "Tell It Like It Is." When you have to sing that song, does it bring back memories?
Oh it does, I mean, I've sang it probably like about a million times.

You have a one-of-a-kind voice and when you hear artists today is there anyone who stands out with that one-of-a-kind special something?
I still listen to the old school but I like what Beyonce does. She has a great voice, her and Christina Aguilera, Usher, and Bruno Mars.
