Gil Scott-Heron 'I'm New Here' video
It can be a bizarre twist in hearing covers that are originally written by lesser known artists. Like Johnny Cash a few years ago epically covering the Nine Inch Nails track 'Hurt', many people seemed to think it was the other way round. Here is another beautiful example.
Check out the video for the fantastic and legendary Jazz Poet Gil Scott-Heron. 'I'm New Here' is the title track from this years amazing comeback album and is a cover of a track by Lo-Fi folk musician Bill Callahan aka Smog. The video can be found here on the Guardian website.
