Judith Hill's debut album is set for release on NPG Records October 23rd, 2015. The album was produced by PRINCE at his Paisley Park Studios in Minneapolis.

The wide release follows the album's unprecedented introduction in March 2015, 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 multi-platinum icon Prince. Their creative partnership began after Judith 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...

The scintillating, horn-fueled "Cry, Cry, Cry," one of eleven tracks penned by Hill for Back In Time, is streaming now on TIDAL and Spotify.

Rolling Stone has praised Hill's "seasoned, soulful sound" and The Wall Street Journal noted, "[She] has pipes, experience, style." The Huffington Post hailed her as "a standout talent" and Idolator observed, "Her pitch, range and style are absolutely outstanding."

Hill, who opened for Prince on his spring 2015 tour, duets with him on "Million $ Show," the lead-off track on his new album, HITNRUN Phase One, which was released this month. She won a GRAMMY® 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. Judith 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 four 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.-DocFB

  1. The ?stion is: do they really expect anyone to buy this album? I’ve heard the album….it’s good. Really good. Reminds me of Alicia Keys. But the problem is that it is all over the Internet already. I missed the chance to get the free download but still ended up hearing it somewhere else (won’t say where). That said, I’m still tempted to buy a hardcopy.

  2. Great news!!

    Prince still humorous..that’s a good thang..

    They was jammin..Parliament/Funkadelic style…now that’s what I’m talkin bout P!

  5. Great news! Can’t wait to buy this CD – it needs to be in my car now!! Love this video with that fabulous band & of course Prince’s humour! LOL @ the LOCKOUT!!

  6. I watched the video earlier and really enjoyed it. I love the song Cry, Cry, Cry. Soulful and old skool-ish. After I watched the video, I wondered why not more of these kinds of videos are put out. It’s like an introductory mini-doc.

    I liked that the beginning and the end of the video were tied together, too. Judith and then Prince locked out in the cold! LoL
