Singer Lauryn Hill, 38, celebrated her release from prison today with a new song entitled "Consumerism". Like most of Hill's songs, the single covers Hill's obsession with a materialistic society.
Hill was convicted of income tax evasion in May. She served three months in federal prison after paying paid $900,000 in back taxes.
"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," Hill said in a press release. "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".

Prosecutors charged the Grammy winner with “willfully failing to file income tax returns with the IRS” for 3 years. According to Hill, she wasn't obligated to pay taxes for those 3 years since she wasn't working. But the judge disagreed, saying Hill earned a modest sum of 1.8 million dollars from 2005-2007. She faces up to 5 years in jail and an additional $100,000 in fines.
