Grammy award-winner Jill Scott is set to release her fifth studio effort, and first since 2011, with the new album WOMAN due out July 24 via Atlantic Records.
The thought provoking album has been preceded by the singles “Fool’s Good,” which is currently #5 on the Billboard Adult R&B chart, and the critically acclaimed, “You Don’t Know.” Executive produced by the vocal powerhouse herself alongside producer extraordinaire Andre Harris (“Long Walk Home” & “Is It The Way”) and Nashville great Aaron Pearce, Jill is describing the sound of this album as “classic Philly soul meets Country rhythm served with captivating storytelling”.
In addition to the new album, Jill Scott is giving her fans what they’ve been waiting for with a tour and other live performances throughout the summer. The tour—playing in a combination of theaters and amphitheaters in over 25 cities—kicks off July 9 in St Louis and finales on August 28 in Phoenix, AZ.
Jill also formed a unique partnership with iHeartMedia and Live Nation whereby together they developed an annual radio show platform named “Summer Block Party” for the Urban AC space, similar to the Jingle Ball and Powerhouse shows in other radio formats. She serves as a partner and performer in the sold out, inaugural V103 Summer Block Party on July 11 in Chicago. Jill will be performing new music from her upcoming album, WOMAN along with her classic hits.
