Pitchfork have done it again, this time their ‘For One Week Only’ series features an eleven minute docu-thingy on Gil Scott-Heron and the making of his new album I’m New Here.
Get to it here, then cop the album if you haven’t already. It’s short, but to the point and on point.
“You gotta listen to your parents, their parents and their parents too….”
As you may know, the legendary Gil Scott-Heron has returned with a new album for the first time in many a year.
You can listen to it here, then get your ass down to the record shop and order it, so it arrives on yer doorstep soon as it’s released next Monday.
His lyrical bullets are still intact and on target. The music travels through the Blues (of course), spacial minimalism, hip hop, gospel and beyond.
Welcome back Gil.
