Jamie xx and Gil Scott-Heron to Collaborate on New LP

Early this year, iconic vocalist/musician Gil Scott-Heron (pictured above) released I'm New Here, his first album in 13 years, on XL Recordings. Scheduled to be released over a year after that LP, We're New Here is a re-imagining of Scott-Heron's return of a record by hotly tipped producer, and member of The xx, Jamie xx. The record features 13 out of 15 songs from I'm New Here, all reworked with a heavy UK bass slant. The Young Turks imprint will drop We're New Here on February 22.
