Video: Gil Scott-Heron: Alien (Hold On To Your Dreams)

In Other by El Cynico URM

One of the modern day pioneers of Soul Music, who also had beginnings in the birth of Hip Hop, is Gil Scott-Heron. Although his passing has left a void that cannot be filled, he recorded stripped down new versions of his greatest songs in 2008 at New Yorks Looking Glass studios. 

Accompanying himself on Piano with no over-dubs is ‘Nothing New’ which gives us an insight into one of the most profound recording artists of all time. The release is due out only on 12″ vinyl, limited too 3000 copies and will be a part of Record Store Day, April 19th.
