To mark the tenth anniversary of the release of ‘I’m New Here’, the thirteenth - and last - studio album from the legendary US musician, poet and author Gil Scott-Heron, XL Recordings has released this unique reinterpretation of the album by acclaimed US jazz musician Makaya McCraven.

This very much follows in the footsteps of Jamie xx’s highly acclaimed 2011 remix album ‘We’re New Here’. One of the most vital new voices in modern jazz, McCraven is described by the New York Times as a "Chicago-based drummer, producer and beat maker, [who] has quietly become one of the best arguments for jazz’s vitality".
