It’s been 15 years since the last one, but now Fugees is reuniting. The band will be touring the world to celebrate that 25 years have passed since the album “The score” was released, writes Pitchfork.
Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and Pras Michel give twelve concerts in the US, London, Paris and Nigeria and Ghana in November and December. The band will also be hosting an emerging concert somewhere in New York as early as September 22nd.
“The score” was Fugee’s second album, with singles such as “Ready or not” and “Killing me softly”. The album’s release in 1996 was followed by a period of internal friction and legal issues before the band split in 2006.
In 2007, Pras Michel said there was “more chance of seeing Osama Bin Laden and (George W) Bush at Starbucks discussing foreign policy over a latte” than working again with Lauryn Hill.
But now it seems that oil has been spilled on the waves and, in a press release, Hill stresses that he decided to “honor this significant project, its anniversary and the fans who appreciated the music by creating a peaceful platform where they can unite. we loved playing music and set an example for world reconciliation. “
