Lauryn Hills Makes Her Return
The Fugees’ Lauryn Hill will debut her new song, “Lose Myself,” on the Surf’s Up (Music From the Motion Picture) soundtrack. Surf’s Up is an animated action-comedy that takes a look behind the world of competitive surfing. The film will be released nationwide on Friday, June 8 and the soundtrack will be released on Tuesday, June 5. “We are thrilled to be a part of the return of Ms. Lauryn Hill,” says Liza Richardson, music supervisor for Surf’s Up. “Apparently, she related to [the] story — reaching the top, checking out for awhile, doing some soul searching and re-emerging with joy — and wrote and recorded a real celebratory summer jam session. We’re glad to have Lauryn back where she belongs.”
In related news, Hill has announced she will host two rare concerts in California this summer. On June 27, she will perform a set at Oakland’s Paramount Theatre and on June 29, she will hit the stage at Pala’s Palomar Starlight Theater. Lauryn is heading to the UK this July to perform three gigs as well.
