Courtesy of XL Recordings, here’s a new single from the late Gil-Scott Heron titled ‘Alien (Hold On To Your Dreams)’ which — along with the interludes ‘Enjoy Yourself’ and ‘The On/Off Switch’, are taken from the forthcoming Nothing New (due April 19th).

During the 2008 I’m New Here sessions at New Yorks Looking Glass studios, Gil 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.
