Lauryn Hill Finally Gracing Us With Second Album?

News

Vibe / September 2, 2010

Is Lauryn Hill on the comeback trail… officially, not just in our dreams? At the least, you may not have to wait much longer for a follow-up to her classic 1998 LP, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

The ex-Fugees rapper/vocalist told MTV she’s “getting closer” to releasing a new album. “There’s been such a long period of time where I haven’t been able to communicate where my mind is, where my consciousness is, where my ideas are,” she said. “This is an athletic discipline. You gotta be in shape to do it mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically. But it’s time.”

Well, D’Angelo’s been sitting on an alleged album for years. Let’s hope Ms. Hill isn’t sippin’ on the same juice. The singer has already been the talk of the summer after performing four dates on the Rock the Bells tour, including in New York last week.

“I have to upgrade [songs] a bit so that they’re still exciting, fresh and new,” said Hill of the shows. “I’m not sure if the audience really understands. We need, or at least I need, a certain amount of spontaneity, a certain amount of improvisation at every show … It’s that unknown, that literal X factor that makes every show different, and something I want to continue to do.”

Will you be patiently waiting or are you over it?
