Jill Scott fans may not have to wait much longer for her next album. The three-time Grammy Award winning singer and actress has signed a deal with Warner Brothers Records. Jill’s eagerly awaited fourth studio album, The Light Of The Sun will be released later this year.
“I’ve always looked to empower my fans through my message of love, independence and strength,” comments Jill. “A lot has gone on in my life since my last album, so I’m extremely excited to share the new music with all of the people that have supported me these past ten plus years. This album is very revealing, and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
Scott released her first album Who Is Jill Scott? Words And Sounds Vol. 1 in 2000 on Hidden Beach Records. She released two more. Two more critically acclaimed albums followed, Beautifully Human: Words & Sounds, Vol. 2 and The Real Thing: Words & Sounds, Vol. 3.
“As the music industry evolves, the relationship between artist, management and label is constantly changing,” comments Shawn Gee of Sports & Entertainment Financial Group, Jill’s business partner. “Foregoing the traditional formula and strategically creating a true partnership amongst us all, I have to commend Warner Bros. for recognizing Jill’s worldwide brand and acting on it.”
