Jill Scott Announces ‘Woman’ Album, Summer Tour
After a four-year hiatus, Jill Scott will bless her fans with a new album, simply titled Woman, this summer. This will be the Philly songbird’s fifth studio project and her first for Atlantic Records.
According to Billboard, Scott executive produced the album along with longtime collaborators Andre Harris and tunesmith Aaron Pearce. The 43-year-old singer describes the project as “classic Philly soul meets country rhythm served with captivating storytelling.”
The set’s first single is the melodic ballad “Fools Gold.” Another LP track, the heartbreaking ballad “You Don’t Know,” was previously released.

The 25-city trek kicks off July 13 in Pittsburgh, Pa., and will hit major cities like Baltimore, Brooklyn, N.Y., Atlanta, Nashville, Houston, Los Angeles and others before wrapping it up on Aug. 28 in Phoenix, Ariz.
