Lauryn Hill will officially be embarking on a tour celebrating the 25th anniversary of her iconic album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. Concerts will begin, this fall, with a show in Minneapolis. Fugees as well as Koffee will be joining her for several dates.

In a press release, Hill said: “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill is and was a love song to my parents, my family, my people, my musical and cultural forebears, my teachers, my loves, my Creator. I wrote love songs and protest songs—(still love songs) about the subjects and interests that inspired and moved me. I was confident that what inspired me would resonate with an audience that had been led to believe that songs of that kind could only live in the past.”

She continued: “I loved music, I loved people, I truly felt grateful to God for my life, and genuinely blessed to have a platform where I could share wisdom and perspective through music. I felt a charge to challenge the idea that certain kinds of expression and/or certain kinds of people didn’t belong in certain places. I loved showing what could work or happen provided there was imagination, creativity, and LOVE leading the way.” Hill dropped The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill back in 1998 as what remains her only solo studio album.
