GRiZ has unleashed the fourth single off his forthcoming full-length album, Ride Waves. “A New Day” featuring Matisyahu is a song with a message — their cry to end senseless gun violence.
The song was written just days after last year’s tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland. GRiZ and Matisyahu couldn’t get the horrible event off their minds. Instead of pushing their thoughts to the side, they wrote “A New Day” to inspire change.
The single is a beautifully produced creation that upholds each artist’s unmistakeable style — and what they stand for. Every note and lyric falls right into place as these two take a stand. GRiZ and Matisyahu each provided statements to accompany the new release.
In Matisyahu’s own words: “The song kind of wrote itself and it came at a time when this was obviously what was going on around us and in our consciousness. When we walked into the studio we knew we wanted to make a meaningful song but we didn’t walk in there with this specific intention (addressing gun violence). When we came into that artistic place where we were like ‘let’s open up and figure out what is going on inside of us,’ this is what rose to the top.”
In GRiZ’s own words: “Matisyahu’s voice speaks volumes to so many people. He has this unique ‘way’ of speaking and I am infinitely humbled that we were able to link up an idea that I think is very necessary today.”
