The wait is now over.
Music lovers have been impatiently waiting for Lauryn Hill to drop new material for years, and today she’s finally given the people what they’ve been asking for.
The iconic songstress has released a new track called ‘Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix).’
According to reports, the singer, who now goes by the full name Ms. Lauryn Hill, was required to release the song as part of her deal with Sony Music. Reportedly, the record label paid her outstanding tax debt in return for new material.
Here’s what Ms. Hill had to say about the song on her Tumblr page.
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!
Take a listen to the song, which is available on iTunes, below. Be sure to tell us what you think!
