"Back In Time," the debut album from acclaimed singer/songwriter Judith Hill, will be released through NPG Records on Oct. 23. The wide release follows the album's unprecedented introduction in March, when Live Nation made it available to newsletter subscribers for free for a brief 48 hours.
Hill co-produced the soulful "Back In Time" with multiplatinum icon Prince. Their creative partnership began after Hill named the legendary artist as her dream collaborator in an interview. Prince called her shortly thereafter and invited her to Paisley Park Studios. The playful behind-the-scenes video, which premiered today, captures the jam-like vibe of the subsequent recording sessions. You can watch it HERE.
The scintillating, horn-fueled "Cry, Cry, Cry," one of 11 tracks penned by Hill for "Back In Time," is streaming now on TIDAL and Spotify.
Hill, who opened for Prince on his spring tour, duets with him on "Million $ Show," the leadoff track on his new album, "HITNRUN Phase One," which was released this month. She won a Grammy Award earlier this year when the Morgan Neville-directed documentary "20 Feet From Stardom" was honored as Best Music Film. The film, which also won an Oscar, shines the spotlight on the untold true story of singers like Hill and co-stars Darlene Love, Merry Clayton and Lisa Fischer, who have backed some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Hill has supported such artists as the late Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, John Legend and Josh Groban.
Hill, who wrote her first song when she was only 4 years old, comes from a musical family. Her mother, a classical pianist from Japan, and her father, a funk bass player, both played with Sly Stone, Chaka Khan, Rufus and many other artists.
