Jamie Smith of The xx releases a new album comprised of remixes and Gil Scott-Heron smaples. Gil Scott-Heron’s voice had once been a fixture in Jamie Smith’s pre-pubescent life. He remarked to Pitchfork Magazine that he remembers listening to Scott-Heron as a child and never dreamed of seeing his own name next to Scott-Heron’s on an album. Yet on February 22nd the album We’re New Here will drop in the US and fans will hear famed xx producer dubbing Scott-Heron’s vocals over his own instrumentals and beats. Watch the video for the Smith, Scott-Heron colaboration right here: NY is Killing Me

 The Album has been heralded as a bridge between generations. You can read Jamie Smith’s interview in its entirety, in which xx producer comments on his current dealings with Drake, and his own new music, right here.
