Jill Scott On New Albums: ‘I Can’t Stay In The Same Place’

Jill Scott has not only been at work on new films, including David E. Talbert's "Baggage Claim." She has been busy working on not one, but two albums.

The "Hear My Call" singer broke the news during the Essence Music Festival earlier this month, calling one of the albums "the lullaby album."

"The record is the Lullaby album. It is intended to help you sleep. All of the things that you get fed everyday about your life; about your beauty; about your capacity; about your failures — all of that stuff that you don't have based on what you see on television. The record is intended to de-program you. It is a lot of true from the heart lyrics and I could not write them until I was pregnant and understood that you love with love," said Scott.

As for the second album, Jill was a little less forthcoming, but said it will be different from what listeners have heard before.

"The next record is a lot different. I'm very proud of the records. It's so much that I wanna tell you, but I don't want to give it away either. It will be different on your ears because I can't stay in the same place or I'll die. And you don't want me to die. I've got to keep moving," said Scott.
