Lauryn Hill unleashes the new song in the name of "Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)," her first offering since signing a new record deal with Sony Music. On the trip-hop influence track, Ms. Hill fires off some social conscious lyrics about the recklessness in today's society.
The song's release was also accompanied by a note from Ms. Hill:
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!
We definitely don't want Ms. Hill to rush her art, but we can't complain about the new music.
