LISTEN: Lauryn Hill Releases New Song “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”
Lauryn Hill released a new song over the weekend, her first since 2010’s “Repercussions.”
The track – titled “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)” – features rapid-fire spitting and biting social commentary, over a spastic beat.
The release is apparently a part of her recent deal with Sony, allowing her to avoid jail time. Hill addressed the less-than-ideal circumstances surrounding the release in a Tumblr post:
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!
