Lauryn Hill has chosen the soundtrack to the animated movie about a penguin, Surf’s Up, to feature her first single in ages, Lose Myself.
The press release has more to say: “Apparently, she related to Big Z’s story – reaching the top, checking out for a while, doing some soul searching and re-emerging with joy – and wrote and recorded a real celebratory summer jam session for ‘Surf’s Up.'”

Whatever. I’ve been listening to Lose Myself all weekend, I think it is brilliant. There have been rumors about Lauryn’s new album for a couple of years, with album titles like: Reconciliation, New Heavy, Call Me Ms. Hill or Khulami Phase. I’m sure she’ll come up with something new. The word on the street is that she would like to release the album next year, 10 years after The Miseducation.
That will almost push her into Kate Bush territory regarding the time taken between albums (if you don’t count Lauryn’s Unplugged set). Issues.
