I'm New Here received positive reviews from most critics and debuted at number on the US Billboardselling 3, copies in its first week. I'm New Here is a departure from the rhythmic, jazz-funk and soul style of Scott-Heron's previous work,    and embraces an acoustic and electronic minimal sound.
The album contains a sonically dark and gritty soundscape characterized by low-tone synths and spatial beats. Scott-Heron's baritone vocals on the album stylistically range from spoken word to blues-oriented crooning. I'm New Here features introspective, confessional lyrics expressing themes of regret, reconciliation, and redemption,     which deviate from his earlier music's agitprop lyrics and social, political themes.
The album's bookending and two-part poem "On Coming from a Broken Home" features piano and a sampled string loop from Kanye West 's " Flashing Lights " The album's lead single, "Me and the Devil", was released on February 22, as a 7" and music download.
