Last week, Lauryn Hill announced on her Tumblr that in order to avoid sentencing for not paying her taxes, she had “signed a new record deal…with Sony Worldwide Entertainment, to launch a new label.” Hill promised that she was working on new music, too, and earlier this afternoon, she released a new song, “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix),” not because she wanted to, but because she was “required” to.
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!
