XL Recordings will release Nothing New, an album of unheard Gil Scott-Heron recordings on April 19. GS-H's would have celebrated his 65th birthday this year, but he died in 2011.
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 3,000 copies, and released exclusively for Record Store Day on April 19, 2014.
