Gil Scott-Heron/I’m New Here

Gil Scott-Heron (born April 1, 1949) is an American poet, musician, and author known primarily for his late 1960s and early 1970s work as a spoken word soul performer and his collaborative work with musician Brian Jackson. His collaborative efforts with Jackson featured a musical fusion of jazz, blues and soul music, as well as lyrical content concerning social and political issues of the time, delivered in both rapping and melismatic vocal styles by Scott-Heron. The music of these albums, most notably Pieces of a Man and Winter in America in the early 1970s, influenced and helped engender later African-American music genres such as hip hop and neo soul. Scott-Heron’s recording work is often associated with black militant activism and has received much critical acclaim for one of his most well-known compositions «The Revolution Will Not Be Televised«.

On 8th February 2010, Gil Scott-Heron will release his new album ‘I’m New Here’ on independent label XL Recordings. Produced by XL label owner Richard Russell, ‘Im New Here’ is Scott-Heron’s first album in thirteen years.

The pair started recording the album in 2007, with the majority of the record being recorded over the last twelve months with engineer Lawson White at Clinton Studios in New York. In 2009, a new Gil Scott-Heron website http://www.gilscottheron.net was launch and brand new track ‘Where Did The Night Go’ made available as a free download from the site.
