SPOKEN WORD: Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie XX - 'I'm New Here'

Gil Scott TheStreetGypsies Have you ever thought that you have gone so far its impossible to turn back? well the legend that is Gil Scott Heron speaks on it.

I did not become someone different That I did not want to be But I'm new here Will you show me around

No matter how far wrong you've gone You can always turn around Met a woman in a bar Told her I was hard to get to know And near impossible to forget She said I had an ego on me The size of Texas

Well I'm new here and I forget Does that mean big or small

No matter how far wrong you've gone You can always tournaround

Wiki Collaboration Fact: In late 2010, a Jamie xx remix of the song "NY Is Killing Me" from Gil Scott-Heron's last album I'm New Here aired on radio stations across the UK and Europe. The remix of "I'll Take Care Of U" followed in January 2011. Both singles drew the attention of the general public and the critics. They set the way for a 13-track remix album entitled We're New Here, produced entirely by Jamie xx and credited to "Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx". The album was released on February 21, 2011 on the XL Records label.
