Jamie xx, of The xx fame (if you couldn’t guess) has remixed the whole of Gil Scott-Heron’s 2010 album I’m New Here. The original album was Scott-Heron’s first for thirteen years and was released on XL last February. The xx are also on XL (well, their subsidiary Young Turks) and Jamie of the band took it upon himself to remix the thirteen tracks from the original sessions. He caused quite a buzz with his remix of “NY is Killing Me” and now you can see if he’s kept up that quality across the while record by listening below.
We’re New Here will be released on February 21st via XL/Young Turks.
