About this album

I’m New Here is the thirteenth studio album by American soul artist Gil Scott-Heron, released February 8, 2010 on XL Recordings. It is Scott-Heron’s first album of original material in sixteen years, following a period of personal and legal troubles with drug addiction. Recording sessions for the album took place during 2007 to 2009 and production was handled by XL Recordings-owner Richard Russell. Primarily a blues and spoken-word album, I’m New Here serves as musical and lyrical departure from Scott-Heron’s previous work.

The album debuted at number 181 on the US Billboard 200 chart, selling 3,700 copies in its first week. It has spawned one single, “Me and the Devil”, an adaptation of blues musician Robert Johnson’s “Me and the Devil Blues” (1937). Upon its release, I’m New Here received generally positive reviews from most music critics.
