"We're New Here": Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie xx album transmission

Gil Scott-Heron & Jamie xx's anticipated "We're New Here" is coming out on February 22 on XL Recordings. Jamie's remixes and productions for other artists is almost as acclaimed as his main band, so the prospect of hearing the xx's not-so-secret weapon re-working this legendary poet/soulman's comeback album, "I'm New Here," is exciting for fans of both artists.

While it's still a few weeks away from the record's release, XL has set up a virtual transmitter that allows owners of newer smartphones like the iPhone (and iPad), Android (running OS 2.3) and touchscreen Blackberry to stream the album in its entirety while you're inside the Other Music store in East Village store. We don't really understand the technology, but it's pretty cool and you should definitely check it out during your next visit there. Just point your smartphone's web browser here:
