Gil Scott-Heron - I'm New Here (new album / video / stream)

Gil Scott-Heron

I'm New Here

(XL)

Releasing: 9 February

Spoken word artist and poet Gil Scott-Heron was a massive influence on the development of hip-hop. His socially and politically conscious work of the late '60s and '70s and performance style strongly anticipated the more brainy styles of rap and even less obvious genres such as acid jazz. Next week Scott-Heron releases his first album in 13 years with I'm New Here and the first video has hit the Internet. Plus, you can stream the whole album below.
