Lauryn Hill was released from prison after a three-month sentence for tax evasion today (October 4), but hours before her release she dropped a new track, “Consumerism,” which takes a shot at the corporate system.

The song, according to Hill’s Tumblr, “is a product of the space she was in while she was going through some of the challenges she has been faced with recently.” Over a New Age beat, Hill lists a series of -isms including ageism, skepticism, terrorism, chauvinism, masochism, hedonism, nihilism, commercialism, narcissism and egotism, which she spouts off eight times in a row.

In an open letter, Hill explained that, “Consumerism is part of some material I was trying to finish before I had to come in. We did our best to eek out a mix via verbal and emailed direction, thanks to the crew of surrogate ears on the other side.”
