Matisyahu blasts off with Spark Seeker, a bold new studio album that finds him exploring new, uncharted territory with help from an expansive cast from around the globe. The album is produced by multi-platinum Brazilian songwriter/producer Kool Kojak (Nicki Minaj, Travis Barker, Ke$ha) and includes collaboration with Belizean rapper, Shyne and many others. The album mixes ancient traditional sounds with futuristic electro beats, rapping with singing, and songs of the spirit with songs of the body.
Matisyahu has released “Elijah’s Song” in memory of a young boy he met who was suffering from cancer. During the time that Matisyahu knew him, he and Elijah became great friends; Matisyahu would keep in constant contact with the young man, even surprising him by performing at his bar mitzvah. Elijah had asked that he and Matisyahu record a song together, and in Elijah’s final hours, the song was completed and is now available to download.
Matisyahu has released a brand new Chanukah song, “Miracle,” on iTunes, one week ahead of the Festival of Light, his fifth annual series of shows celebrating Chanukah. An uplifting pop gem arriving just in time for the holiday, “Miracle,“ produced by Dr. Luke protégé Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Katy Perry, Ke$ha), is drenched in a joyful spirit and features chiming synths, bouncing beats and an irresistible chorus. “Miracle” is now streaming on Matisyahu’s web site and is available on iTunes.
