Transmitting now: Gil Scott-Heron and the Jamie XX

If you have a new-ish phone, and somehow manage to get in the range of a transmitter, you can listen to We're New Here.

Which is this:

Welcome to the Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx "We're New Here" Album Transmitter.

We are transmitting the album from several locations across the globe. To be able to listen, all you need to do is go to werenewhere.com/radio from your smartphone when you're within range of one of the transmitters.

This receiver relies on HTML5 technologies, so will only work on recent smartphones (including iPhones, iPods, iPads and Android phones running OS 2.3).

If you are having issues please contact webeditor@beggars.com.

"We're New Here" by Gil Scott-Heron and Jamie xx is released 21st February on XL Recordings.
It looks like you'll struggle to hear it if you're in Colchester. Until it's out to buy, of course.
