Song of the Week: "Pieces of a Man"


Gil Scott-Heron's Nothing New is a stripped down vocal and piano version of songs from his back catalog recorded in New York with producer Richard Russell between 2005 and 2009. The track "Pieces of a Man" appeared on that album originally released as a limited edition vinyl-only LP for Record Store Day 2014. The music was finally made available digitally for the first time earlier this week. iTunes also released the documentary Who Is Gil Scott-Heron?, a film by BAFTA nominated film makers Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard. Check out the 10 minute sizzle reel of the film – along with Richard Russell’s full album sleeve notes and exclusive photography at Screenings of the film will take place in select cities, including New York and Washington D.C, in spring, with full details to be announced soon.
