Judith Hill’s debut album Back In Time comes out via NPG Records on October 23. Hill co-produced the album with Prince at his famed Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis, and she also opened for his tour earlier this spring.
Hill was previously profiled in the Grammy and Oscar winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom and she also had a celebrated run on the hit NBC show The Voice (I interviewed Hill back in 2013, and my Q&A with the talented songstress is found here). Before those accomplishments, the singer also worked with Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder, and she’s also the writer/performer behind the underrated (and soulful) soundtrack to the Spike Lee film Red Hook Summer. Below is a stripped down, piano driven version of one of the movie’s tunes, “Beautiful Life.”
Back In Time’s full track listing is as follows: “As Trains Go By,” “Turn Up,” “Angel in the Dark,” “Beautiful Life,” “Cure,” “Love Trip,” “My People,” “Wild Tonight,” “Cry Cry Cry,” and “Jammin’ in the Basement.”
In the video featurette below, snippets of “Turn Up” and “Cry, Cry, Cry” are performed, as Hill visits Paisley Park:
