Lauryn Hill debuts new material on tour, “Fearless Vampire Killer”

March 2, 2012

Lauryn Hill has been back on tour since the birth of her sixth child Marley Hill in July, and we’re seeing signs that she’s been in the studio as well. Here’s footage above of a new song, “Fearless Vampire Killer”, performed as the finale at her D.C. appearance. It’s a powerful song for sure, in keeping with her output the last few years, it’s a high-energy blast with soaring vocals and guitars, and her spoken word/rapping has a certain preacher quality to it. If the visuals above leave you wanting, check out this video after the jump. It has clearer images but the audio barely exists…so just mix them in your mind. Read More: Okayplayer
