Gil Scott-Heron
I'm New Here 10th Anniversary Expanded Edition

[ XL Recordings / 2 CD ]

Release Date: Friday 7 February 2020

In February 2010, the late, legendary musician, poet and author Gil Scott-Heron released his thirteenth, and last, studio album. First conceptualised in 2005, and ultimately produced by XL Recordings head Richard Russell during New York recording sessions that commenced in January 2008, I'm New Here was Scott-Heron's first album in thirteen years and found him sounding as vital, boundary-pushing and insightful as ever before.

In addition to the original album, the I'm New Here 10th Anniversary Edition features two unreleased tracks - a cover of Richie Havens' 'Handsome Johnny' and a previously unheard Scott-Heron song 'King Henry IV' - as well as a selection of other recordings from the original I'm New Here sessions that were only previously available on a rare, vinyl only deluxe version of the LP.
