Here’s a new video from renowned poet Gil Scott-Heron for his new single, “I’m New Here”, directed by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. The video differs from the average music video as it contains live sound from the artists performance. The directors wanted to keep the video “simple; no messing, no gimmicks,” and their approach works as their treatment of the visuals complements Gil’s artistry. “I’m New Here” is taken from Gil Scott-Heron’s latest album, I’m New Here which is available to download on iTunes and Amazon.co.uk today.
