OUT MARCH 5, 2021
Today, powerhouse vocalist and Grammy-winning artist Judith Hill releases “Baby, I’m Hollywood!”, the electrifying title track of her upcoming studio album Baby I’m Hollywood! available via The Regime on March 5, 2021. In the powerful visual, Judith catapults between the highs and lows of life in the spotlight, showing off both the glamour and the struggles in her pursuit of music. Oozing with classic rock and funk, the new single is both a song of heartbreak and a powerful self-love anthem.
“‘Baby, I’m Hollywood!’ personifies Hollywood as a woman,” Hill explains. “The music captures her free spirit, yet lyrically, it underlines the pain she has endured. It is very much a reflection of my life and how it has been growing up in the entertainment business. The show must always go on and yet you learn how to put your pain in the songs…. that is what makes the stage so visceral and alive. Beyond the lights and glamour, there is depth. I wanted to show that side of Hollywood and give the word a different feeling.”
“Baby, I’m Hollywood!” follows “Americana,” the album’s provocative debut single calling for change and challenging what it means to be an American. The upcoming 13-track album will follow her 2018 album release Golden Child and was self-produced by Hill herself.
To promote her new album, Hill has sponsored a contest where 5 winners will receive private vocal lessons from the Grammy-winning star herself. Those who wish to enter can fill out and submit an entry form before the release of her album on March 5. Details for the contest can be found here.
This past November, Hill also opened the 2020 NBA Draft telecast on ESPN with an exclusive performance of “Thank You,” a bonus track from Baby, I’m Hollywood. Hill and her inspirational anthem were the voice of this year’s NBA Draft campaign. A link to watch the performance is below.
Additionally, Hill recently did live stream performances at the virtual Georgia Comes Alive festival, which aimed to encourage voting in the Georgia Senate runoff elections. Other performers included Diplo, Portugal. The Man, and Grace Potter. And at A David Bowie Celebration: Just for One Day, where she sang “Lady Stardust” and “Under Pressure.”
Hill was also active in charity events this past year, performing for the virtual GO Gala hosted by Lily Collins, Robert Pattinson, and Ewan McGregor. Performers at the Gala included HAIM, Katherine McPhee, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. And Hill’s music was featured on several shows from Hulu and Netflix. She covered Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” for Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere and also featured on Gerard Way’s “Here Comes the End,” heard in the season 2 trailer for Netflix’s The Umbrella Academy.
