And so it goes that Ms Lauryn Hill is sortamaybekinda back. We’ve all been made very aware of her tax evasion debacle. In an attempt to remedy that, she’s signed a new contract with Sony that binds her to release 5 sets of new music before her imminent new album (also a contractual prescription) release.
Here’s the official statement from MLS released on her Tumblr.
Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!
Head down to iTunes for an exclusive preview and download of the new song, “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”.
