Jill Scott is back in the studio recording a new album. A follow up to 2007’s Grammy nominated album “The Real Thing,” Scott’s forthcoming effort is said to be taking a personal turn, described as “a flurry of emotional poetry as both her career and personal life have skyrocketed with success in Hollywood and the birth of her first child.”
Titled “The Light of the Sun,” the album is expected to be a Spring/Summer 2010 release, just in time for Scott’s return to the stage.
Joining Mary J. Blige, Erykah Badu and Sarah McLachlan, Scott will be a featured performer at the 2010 Lilith Fair Tour; a celebration of diverse female voices across all genres. While dates are being confirmed at this time, the tour will make rounds through North American cities including Dallas, Denver, Portland, Chicago, New York, Washington D.C., Atlanta , Toronto and Montreal.
“The Light of the Sun” is Scott’s fifth studio album and first to follow a bevy of film and television related projects including “Tyler Perry’s ,Why Did I Get Married,’ ‘The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency’ and ‘Sins of the Mother’.
