NEW OR­LEANS — In­dia.Arie’s soul­ful, spirit-filled voice re­turns to the Essence Fes­ti­val, stronger than ever and she says she’s ready for an­other “SongVer­sa­tion.”

The neo-soul singer-song­writer on Fri­day dropped an EP en­ti­tled “SongVer­sa­tion: Medicine.” It in­cludes three new songs, two re-re­leases and two acous­tic re­makes of songs on her 2013 re­lease “SongVer­sa­tion.” That al­bum in­cluded “Just Do You’’ and “Co­coa But­ter.”

The new pro­ject show­cases her feel­ings as some­one close to her fought through can­cer treat­ment.

In an in­ter­view with The As­so­ci­ated Press, In­dia.Arie said the pro­ject is an­other of­fer­ing to the peo­ple.
