Mitisyahu - One Day

Watch the One Day video above above, or...

Grammy-nominated artist Matisyahu will release ‘Light’ on 21st June (100% Records), produced by David Kahne and featuring Stephen McGregor, Sly & Robbie, members of Fishbone and more.

Light which debuted in the top 20 on the US charts, finds the Hasidic Jewish musician from Crown Heights, Brooklyn displaying his one-of-a-kind voice in a variety of diverse genres, moving through his familiar reggae-soul stylings to dancehall, ska-inflected new wave, pop-rock and acoustic folk. Matisyahu blends infectious melodies and intricate production with classic messages of hope, peace and understanding to create a sound that is undeniably his own.

Produced by David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Regina Spektor, Sublime), Light was recorded and mixed in Jamaica, New York, Los Angeles and Virginia. More recently, Matisyahu cut two more tracks with producer Dave McCracken and the Smeezintons. Of those two, One Day will be the first single from Light. It is an anthemic classic reggae track, showcasing Matisyahu's prolific lyrics and passionate vocals. In addition Matisyahu has re-recorded One Day with heavyweight R&B star Akon as a bonus track.

Several guest artists contributed to the record: son of legendary reggae artist Freddie McGregor and one of Jamaica's most innovative producers Stephen McGregor, ground-breaking Jamaican reggae rhythm section Sly & Robbie, noted production team Eric Krasno & Adam Deitch of Fyre Dept. and Fish and Norwood Fisher of the L.A. alt-punk-ska band Fishbone. Jamaican nyabinghi drummers Delroy Williams as Putus Roots, Samuel Count Ossie “Time” Williams and Nambo Robinson and experimental turntablist Ooah from the Glitch Mob, amongst others, also contributed to Light. Track number 8 from the album On Nature is now available for free download from Matisyahu’s site

Matisyahu emerged in 2004 with his debut album Shake Off the Dust…Rise. With the release of Live at Stubb's (2005), which reached #1 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, and Youth (2006), which debuted at #4 on Billboard's Top 200 and reached #1 on the Reggae Albums chart, Matisyahu gained considerable critical acclaim. Both albums subsequently went gold in the US and ‘Youth’ was nominated for a Grammy for Best Reggae Album.
