(Radio.com) Lauryn Hill was released from prison after a three-month sentence for tax evasion on Friday (October 4), but hours before her release she dropped a new track, "Consumerism".

The song, according to Hill's Tumblr, "is a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently."

Over a New Age beat, Hill lists a series of -isms including ageism, skepticism, terrorism, chauvinism, masochism, hedonism, nihilism, commercialism, narcissism and egotism, which she spouts off eight times in a row.

In an open letter, Hill explained that, "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."

Before being incarcerated Hill entered an agreement with Sony to launch her own record label with which to put out her own material. She plans to release five new songs in advance of a full-length studio effort. Prior to serving her sentence, Hill released a new song called "Neurotic Society (Compulsory Mix)," which as she explained on Tumblr came together quicker than she would have liked. More including a stream of the new song.
