Jill Scott To Release New Album This Year

Published: Friday 8th Jan 2010 by Trent

Neo-Soul diva Jill Scott is preparing to release a new studio album this year. The record, entitled ‘The Light Of The Sun’, serves as the 4th installment of t her critically acclaimed ‘Words And Sounds’ series. According to Soul Culture, the singer’s LP will hit stores in Spring/Summer.

As one of the most technically skilled singers to emerge in the last decade, to say that I am eager to hear this record would be an understatement. In addition to her lyrical prowess, Scott’s expansive vocal range and power ranks her in the same league as Lauryn Hill, in my opinion. Moreover, ‘The Real Thing’ was undoubtedly a  modern classic, as many of the singles from the project still enjoy heavy rotation on the R&B formats. ‘The Light Of The Sun’ is definitely one to which I look forward.

    i’m probably in the minority, but i find her voice rather annoying.

    I love Jill Scott! I can’t wait to buy her cd and see her on tour. She gives a great show. However, this picture posted look s nothing like her. It’s really a bad look.

    lol..@ stan..I love me some jill scott, when she sings live, she really expresses her lyrics the way she feels it…so that’s probably why it seems annoying..but her writing skills are amazing. Love Jill Scott!!!

    @erica.. i actually used to listen to her quite a bit, but after a while her voice sounds very whiny to me.

    What great news! I was wondering when she would release her next studio album. Her foray into film and television did her some good, but I’m soooooo glad that she’ll be releasing her next album later this year. She is one of my favourite artists and she has consistently released AMAZING albums. I am looking forward to her next album.

    The experssion in the pic is just for dramatic effect. She is a much better volalist the Jill Scott. One of the best of this era. This is a good year for REAL music, Maxwell, Sade, Raheem Davaughn, Eric Robinson, Jaheim (even). Jill, Erykah, D’Angelo, India & Bilal are all releasing new music this year. SOOO sick of cookie cutter performers Trey, Beyonce, Rihanna, etc.

    My badd, I think Jill Scott is a much better vocalist then Lauryn Hill

    Titled {The Light of the Sun}, the album is expected to be a spring/summer 2010 release, just in time for Scott’s return to the stage… I know I cannot wait for this album to come out. If anyone saw her recent appearance on the Tyler Perry show for the promotion for W.D.I.G.M.2. she sang a few words from her new album and it sounds REALLY good!

    I love Ms. Jill. I can listen to her album over and over and never get tired. I call her CD an album because it is worthy of being called such. An Album s something you archive a CD is something you tear apart and m**. How many Artist can you listen to and call a musician. She is a true vocalist. I cant wait for the new album as well. Oh and the natural on the Tyler Perry show was bold and beautiful..Jill rooocked it. She made me so proud. Keep doing what your doing. I love the pick because it reminds me of the raw beauty the sista’s in the 70″s graced.

    Jill is dynamic, inspirational, and sensual. I am drawn by her spirituality, attracted by her frankness, and captivated by the range of her voice and the richness of her genres. I have attended two of her concerts so far and have seen her in three movies. When you meet Jill Scott the person, you will be compelled by her music. I am a student and fan of Jill Scott.
