Gil Scott-Heron “Nothing New” out April 19 on XL Recordings+Stream “Alien”


gilOn what would have been his 65th birthday, XL Recordings today announce that they will release an album of unheard Gil Scott-Heron recordings.

During the 2008 I’m New Here sessions at New York’s Looking Glass studios, Scott-Heron recorded stripped-down, new versions of some of his greatest songs. Accompanying himself on piano and with no overdubs, this is Nothing New, a unique musical insight into one of the most profound recording artists of our time. It will be available only on 12″ vinyl, limited to 3000 copies, and released exclusively for Record Store Day on April 19, 2014.
