VIDEO: Gil Scott-Heron – Me And The Devil
This is the official video for the first single to be taken from the upcoming new Gil Scott-Heron album I’m New Here (as reported on Jus Like Music a while back). The single is called Me And The Devil and it’s out on 22nd February, whilst the album actually comes out on 8th February – both via XL Recordings.
Me And The Devil is a dark and gritty track, with an emphasis on raw instrumentation and steady beats. Gil Scott-Heron’s vocals give the track an edge, like an age-worn veneer over solid oak. The predominantly black and white video features a gang of human skeletons – amongst various other nefarious characters – riding the urban streets at night. It’s an extremely well produced video that suits the tone of the track perfectly.
I’ll leave you with a little taster from the album…
