Recently Hill has had to respond to criticism after being two hours late for a gig in Atlanta by attributing her lateness to her need to “align my energy with the time”.

Hill performed at the US city’s Chastain Park Amphitheatre on May 6. The concert had been scheduled to start at 8pm but Hill reportedly didn’t arrive onstage until 10.20pm, eventually performing a 40 minute set, with her microphone being cut off at 11pm due to the venue’s curfew.

Writing on Facebook, Hill said: “I don’t show up late to shows because I don’t care. And I have nothing but love and respect for my fans. The challenge is aligning my energy with the time, taking something that isn’t easily classified or contained, and trying to make it available for others.”
