The recordings are stripped down versions of some of past material, including this version of “Alien (Hold On Your Dreams).” XL chose to make the announcement today on what would have been Gil Scott-Heron’s 65th birthday. Nothing New will be released exclusively in 12″ vinyl on the April 19th Record Store Day.
