While this news is extremely exciting, I take this with a grain of salt. And even if she does come out with an LP next year, if her live shows are an indication, she doesnt have the same pipes as she did on her classic debut.
But let's put all pessimism aside, Miss Hill is one of the most talented artists of the past 20 years, and a new album would be awesome to hear.
