In 1997, Lauryn Hill’s Grammy Award-winning solo album The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill went eight-times-platinum, and fans have been awaiting a follow-up ever since, and they just might get it soon.
Following a host of live albums and buzz singles, Hill has been diligently working on new music. According to Philadelphia producer Phil Niccolo (Cypress Hill, Schoolly D, and DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince), who told The FADER that Hill has been faithfully working on a new opus:
“Since 2010, she has been working quietly and diligently on a new album and a host of politically minded film projects,” he said. “She began touring again five years ago as a way of exercising artistic muscle and financing her recording plans. Niccolo said she is closer than ever to finishing the follow-up to [The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill]. It is political, but also deeply personal,” he says. “She is drawing ‘from all of her inputs.'”
If true, who's excited for new music from Ms. Hill?
