New album ‘Golden Child’ to be released late 2018
Acclaimed vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Judith Hill today releases her new video “The Pepper Club.“ Featuring Hill’s remarkable voice and brimming with the funky R&B she has risen to fame with—via appearances on The Voice and the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom—the track is the first from her forthcoming album Golden Child slated for release in late 2018.
Along with the album release Hill will premiere a live Golden Child performance in Los Angeles that infuses modern dance and soul music flavored with spices of African, samba, classical, Arabic and more cultural textures. The show will feature world musicians, singers, and dancers and minimalist lighting and art direction. Golden Childwill be a structured ballet template with the freedom, spontaneity and improvisation of a funk concert. Three more singles will be released throughout the summer.
Hill has been performing regularly in Los Angeles, New York and elsewhere in recent months. She most recently sang at a benefit for the Los Angeles Unified School District in April along with Sheila E and others.
