I'm sure a lot of people are way more informed about this than me, but it's certainly worth spreading the word...
The legendary singer and poet Gil Scott-Heron is releasing a new album. He has been so long out of the limelight that rumours had circulated that he was dead. As Newsnight's Stephen Smith discovered, he is very much alive and still kicking.
There's a nice clip on BBC:
And while we're here, there are some excellent GSH videos offered by Tales of Gil Scott-Heron
UPDATE Feb. 2010
At the excellent Breath of Life, Kalamu has posted most if not all of the new GSH album.
It'll be up there for the next week.
