Jamie xx Reworks Gil Scott-Heron
We mentioned Gil Scott- Heron’s first album in 16 years, I’m New Here, when it came out back in June, and mentioned director Chris Cunningham’s video and remix for the video when it debuted at MOMA. Now the entire album has been reworked by The xx’s Jamie Smith, who’s been working on non-xx-related projects for a bit. The remix album is called We’re New Here (clever) and will be out in February. Here’s the video for his version of “New York Is Killing Me.” The video was directed by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard.
We’re New Here is out 2/21. Get “New York Is Killing Me” here.
