After three months, Lauryn Hill has been released from a minimum security prison in Connecticut and has brought out a new single in the process.

Hill was jailed after pleading guilty to failing to pay taxes on more than $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007. Her new single Consumerism picks up on criticism Hill made at the time of her arrest in 2012. On a post on her Tumblr blog she chastised pop culture’s “climate of hostility, false entitlement, manipulation, racial prejudice, sexism and ageism.”

“Over-commercialisation and its resulting restrictions and limitations can be very damaging and distorting to the inherent nature of the individual,” Hill wrote. “I did not deliberately abandon my fans, nor did I deliberately abandon any responsibilities, but I did however put my safety, health and freedom and the freedom, safety and health of my family first over all other material concerns! I also embraced my right to resist a system intentionally opposing my right to whole and integral survival.”
