If Gil Scott-Heron's creative resurgence continues after this reintroduction to his poignantly aging voice, we could be looking at one of the most memorably resurrected careers of our time- a man renewed. The xx producer and percussionist Jamie Smith takes a stab at recontextualizing Gil Scott-Heron's excellent 2010 album, I'm New Here.

I’m New Here finds Gil Scott-Heron on the edge, with powerful melodies fixated against the vintage of time. The album is a noticeable departure from the rhythmic and soulful style of Scott-Heron’s previous work. Instead, it focuses upon introspective themes of regret, reconciliation and redemption, and stylistically embraces elements of electronic and ambient music.

Gil Scott-Heron: I'm New Here. His first album in 16 years offers a way back from the wilderness. XL's Richard Russell – who signed the artist as he languished in Rikers Island jail – frames Scott-­Heron's ravaged ruminations on "broken homes" and the like against an eerie backdrop of minimalist electro and bass. Harrowing poetry is mixed with choice covers, from Smog's road-to-redemption title track to a particularly haunted take on Robert Johnson's Me and the Devil. It's blistering stuff
