Lauryn Hill’s debut album, “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill,” was released in 1998.
In a recent feature with The FADER, Jayson Jackson, producer of the film and associate of Hill’s, says that the soul singer has recently found inspiration to make music again, after her contribution to the Nina Symone tribute album.
Her producer had this to say “I know creating makes her very happy,” he says. “I couldn’t see her doing as much as she did [on the Simone project] in any state other than happiness.”
Phil Nicolo, a producer working with Hill, was also a co-founder of Ruffhouse Records, the label that published Fugees’ The Score and Hill’s 1998 debut album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. He has stated that she is “closer than ever to finishing the follow-up to Miseducation.”
Nicolo explains the reasons for the delay between her first and second album
“It’s not that she feels like, ‘You can wait for me.’” he says. “She wants to be right. She wants to be perfect.”
