Unreleased material from Gil Scott-Heron previously only released for Record Store Day 2014. Nothing New compiles several unheard pieces Gil Scott-Heron recorded while working on 2008's I'm New Here. Apparently during those sessions, Heron would revisit many of his old songs and create raw, stripped down versions with just his own voice and piano. Six months after his death in 2011, producer Richard Russell revisited the recordings and compiled them for Nothing New. The album comes complete with DVD featuring the documentary Who Is Gil Scott-Heron? Recommended.
