As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following captioned photo here, being shared by the page, “Ms. Lauryn Hill,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

Consumerism is a track coming out on the eve of Ms. Hill’s release. She wanted to get this music out while she was incarcerated, as it is a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently.
Available now on iTunes:
“Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level.”
– Ms. Lauryn Hill

Lyrics to Lauryn Hill’s Brand New Song, “Neurotic Society”

"Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)"

“Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)”

Yesterday, Lauryn Hill released a new song, entitled, “Neurotic Society”!

Ms. Hill also made a statement about the details of her single’s release on her Tumblr account:

Here is my effort to decipher the lyrics:

(update: on May 13, Ms. Hill was kind of enough to release the actual lyrics to this song, here! I’ve now added a strike-through to each part that I got wrong)

Verse 1
We’re living in a joke time
Metaphorical coke time
Commerce and guru men
Run the whole world men
