The reclusive Grammy winner previously dropped the track “Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)” in May after signing a reported $1 million record deal with Sony.

Hill also took the time to release a statement about her motivations for “Consumerism” and details on how the song was recorded.

Listen to “Consumerism” and read Ms. Hill’s statement below.


 

“Consumerism” is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side. Letters From Exile is material written from a certain space, in a certain place. I felt the need to discuss the underlying socio-political, cultural paradigm as I saw it. I haven’t been able to watch the news too much recently, so I’m not hip on everything going on. But inspiration of this sort is a kind of news in and of itself, and often times contains an urgency that precedes what happens. I couldn’t imagine it not being relevant. Messages like these I imagine find their audience, or their audience finds them, like water seeking it’s level.
