As part of her new $1 million contract with Sony to record a new 5-track album to avoid jail time on tax evasion charges, Lauryn Hill has released a new track entitled “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix).”
Hill issued a statement on being “required” to release the song:
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!
