For fans who just can’t get enough of Jill Scott, this year is shaping up to be a great one. Lovers of the soultress are getting more music from Scott after the drop of her latest hit “Light of the Sun.” As it turns out Jill’s former label, Hidden Beach, will be releasing a collection of previously unreleased songs from Scott.
Whatever has gone on behind the scenes is anyone’s guess, but it looks like all the details have been ironed out and the slightly re-titled The Original Jill Scott From The Vault Vol.1 will be released on August 30th. As previously reported, there will be two versions of the release, the standard will include 11 previously unheard Jilly gems and the deluxe will include two bonus live tracks, a 20 page booklet with lyrics and liner notes, and shiny foil packaging (looks like the “full videography” has been removed). In addition, each version will have slightly different album artwork. You can still sample the tracks from From The Vault here then hit the bounce to get the full tracklist on the release.
No word on if Jill is down with the project’s release. The singer, now at Warner Brothers Records, said in earlier interviews this year that she would not be releasing two albums, only one.
