Lauryn Hill, live UK date!

May 20th, 2005

Lauryn Hill, one third of The Fugee’s and artist of the multi grammy award winning album Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill, will perform on the 12th of July at London’s Coliseum. The event is part of the venue’s 02 Voice Series and is one of many European dates the beautiful rapper and singer has announced for the summer. Once very strongly rumoured to be appearing at this years Glastonbury Festival, this London date is said to be Hill’s only appearance in the UK this year.

Just last week, a studio track of the artist entitled ‘I Find It Hard To Say’ leaked onto the internet. It’s an extremely soulful affair with warm and laid back production. The vocals are as outstanding as ever and proof that few (if any) have come close to blessing our ears with a talent as good since she’s been away. The track is an instruments based version of the acoustic version which was released as part of her ‘MTV Unplugged’ DVD and CD release.

Her second studio album is tipped for a release by the end of 2005, with production handled primarily by herself, with a little contribution from Kanye West.
