Is Lauryn Hill back with “Repercussions”? Possibly. That’s is what Hill responds when asked if she’s recording new material. If “Repercussions” is indeed new, it is the first taste of the too-long awaited Miseducation of Lauren Hill follow-up. The song — which still sounds as if it’s still in its demo stage — is simple and elegant and not unlike the material Erykah Badu neatly presented in New Amerykah Part Two: The Return of Ankh earlier this year. With high profile releases from artists like Badu and Janelle Monae, now feels like the perfect time for Lauryn Hill to drop one on us, after 12 years.
