Today, Record Store Day 2014, see's the release of Gil Scott-Heron's Nothing New, a limited edition vinyl album of unreleased recordings.
During the 2008 I'm New Here sessions at New York’s Looking Glass studios, Scott-Heron recorded stripped-down new versions of some of his greatest songs. Accompanying himself on piano and with no overdubs, this is Nothing New, a unique musical insight into one of the most profound recording artists of our time.
Here you can listen to Alien (Hold On To Your Dreams)
