GRiZ and Matisyahu protest gun violence with ‘A New Day’
Resident funkbass producer GRiZ teams up with Matisyahu on the fourth single “A New Day” from his forthcoming LP Ride Waves due April 5. The signature saxophone takes a backseat on the new single, but GRiZ once again delivers vibrant production that remains consistent with his feel-good style. Its creation draws indirect inspiration from the Parkland Tragedy, which happened days prior to the track’s composition. Both musicians channeled their artistry and compassion into a message calling for an end to gun violence. The result — uplifting lyricism and an anthem for all.
“An New Day” kicks off with guitar chords and Matisyahu’s emotive lyrics before diving into glitchy, bright vocal chops and sunny tropical beats. Matisyahu croons, “Fighting for our peace with the violence/People trading blood with the diamonds/I feel like we might never learn/Shots to the sky.” With its upbeat production and sincere message, ‘A New Day’ infuses the fighting spirit of communities into an inspiring jam for days.
