Lauryn Hill: Neurotic Society
This sounds a bit like what you'd imagine Janelle Monae doing a duet with Erykah Badu would sound like, if they hadn't already done Q.U.E.E.N. Cos it doesn't sound like that.
Anyway, exciting that Call Her Ms Hill is returning and we give this track an XXL thumbs up. "Opinions are like assholes and most of them stink" she sneers over the sort of stroke-inducing soundtrack that you should maybe avoid if you're feeling a bit anxious today.
Here's what Lauryn had to say about the track.
“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!”
