Lauryn Hill to return?
Lauryn Hill has hinted she is ready to make a music comeback.
The 'Killing Me Softly' singer - who rose to fame as part of The Fugees and had a successful solo album 'The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill' - has not released any new music for eight years but thinks the time may now be right to return.
She said: "I'm trying to open up my range and really sing more. With The Fugees initially, and even with '...Miseducation', it was very hip-hop - always a singing over beats. I don't think people have really heard me sing out. So if I do record again, perhaps it will have an expanded context - where people can hear a bit more."
Lauryn, 35, has also lifted the lid on why she decided to quit the music industry claims there isn't a good enough "support system" for artists.
Speaking to NPR Music, she explained: "There were a number of different reasons. But partly, the support system that I needed was not necessarily in place. There were things about myself, personal-growth things, that I had to go through in order to feel like it was worth it. In fact, as musicians and artists, it's important we have an environment - and I guess when I say environment, I really mean the [music] industry, that really nurtures these gifts. Often, the machine can overlook the need to take care of the people who produce the sounds."Posted on 29 Jun 2010 10:00 to category : Music News
