Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie xx – “NY Is Killing Me”

Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie xx – “NY Is Killing Me”

While it seems like quite a long time ago, it was only in February of this year that Gil Scott-Heron dropped his beautiful album, I’m New Here. Thirteen years after ever releasing an album, it was a miraculous accomplishment for Gil to drop such an enjoyable and relevant piece. With the help of Jamie xx, member of one of my favorite indie groups The xx, things get taken a step further with an official remix of “NY Is Killing Me”. And with this, we also get word that Jamie doesn’t stop there, as he has the original sessions for the album and will be releasing 13 remixes of I’m New Here and calling it We’re New Here on Feb. 21, 2011. Talk about a perfect blend of all things wonderful in music.
