Gil Scott-Heron Isn’t ‘New’ To This

Iconic poet-musician-author-legend Gil Scott-Heron presents the video for the title track from his latest album, I'm New Here. Other than the footage of Scott-Heron strolling through Harlem that is projected on various objects like the wall and keyboard keys, the video shows him and an acoustic guitarist in a recording studio. Shot in completely live sound (practically unheard of in today's music videos), we find the pioneering poet sing-talking about the life-journey of coming full circle. Both Scott-Heron's voice and eyes are hypnotic, making it hard to look away. The simple video--just like the song--is both haunting and calming at the same time.

  1. One of my favorite songs on the album. The fact that it's live for the video makes it even better. Absolutely fantastic.

  2. I really wish he could have keep his shit together. The brother is so talented. For you young heads, go look him up and check out some of his old stuff

  3. No one's shit is kept together, it is all separated apart by the movement of atoms and molecules.
    Yo, THIS IS A STUNNING SONG AND VIDEO! Thank you for the blessings, Soulbounce!

    Gil's mistakes and imperfections make him perfect. He uses his life to tell the truths of this world. Besides you show me one person that has all their shit together, and never f'ed up. That person doesn't exist.
