Fans of Lauryn Hill have been waiting for some new music for years and due to her tax troubles, it might be coming sooner than expected.

According to reports, Hill signed a new five-song, $1 million deal with Sony Music that will keep her out of jail.

Hill owes the IRS over $500k in backed taxes.

She has until May 6 to pay off the tab, this new deal should cover that large debt and keep the mother of six out of prison.

Most fans are hoping Ms. Hill comes back with more of “The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill” and less of the “Unplugged” stuff.
