Quantcast

On February 9th, the timeless Gil-Scott Heron will be releasing his first new album in 15 years (40 years since his first solo album), I'm New Here. Here is a video from the LP for, "Me and The Devil." As the title suggests this is a dark and dreary song. Probably not like the Gil you remember, but as always his music has a way of perfectly painting the world we're living in. Video directed by Coodie & Chike and Michael Sterling Eaton… this ish is amazing.

    this joint is so depressing! I feel like his spirit is broken. Lol. I still love it tho. Way different than the classics! I can really try see what he’s feeling. I really love the video! I think its really awesome. I’m really excited to hear the new album! Damn, Mr. Heron I’m taking notes. 🙂

    classic I love Gil Scott. I used to hear him playing in the background of my childhood by my parents. When i grew older his message was so relevant I took the cd and from there I have been a fan.

    The return!! Sounds good to me. I think this is an old Robert Johnson song which is super dope. Respect

    The poem at the end of the song is The Vulture. Gil Scott for those of you unaware, was following in Langston Hughes footsteps when he attended Lincoln (HBCU) and taught some college courses before being the first person signed to Clive Davis Arista Records. He did do some stuff on the Flying Dutchman. He wrote The Vulture a book of poems that came out after Small Talk at 125 and Lennox, the book. His voice is a bit rough but to overcome drug use (I performed with Reg E. Gaines back in the 90’s in San Diego when Reg E did the underground poets movie) and he signed a book for me that even said that the Revolution had been pretty “tough” on Gil. Anyway just thought I’d drop a bit of info. Oh, The Vulture was on Winter in America one of those rare lost records by Gil Scott. This is my first time hearing The Vulture read, it is a song on Winter in America.
