It’s truly a special time whenever Lauryn Hill drops new music.

This holiday season the legend gifted fans with a new song titled “A Cradle In Bethlehem,” and it’s just as beautiful as you’d expect.

The new track comes just before Lauryn’s upcoming performances at the Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C., two new year shows slated for January 1st and January 4th. Apparently, her latest offering wasn’t quite finished when she dropped it. Along with the song, came this message:

Ms. Lauryn Hill previews a version of “A Cradle in Bethlehem” in celebration of Christmas. Although unfinished, she wanted to share the song for the holiday.
