Love it or hate it? Tell us what you think of Matisyahu’s new song “Reservoir.”
It’s the first track from the White Plains-raised musician’s upcoming album “Akeda.” Matisyahu shared the song on SoundCloud Friday, along with a note explaining the meaning behind the lyrics.
“I wanted this to be the very first song you guys heard [from my album] –it is my thank you to Ha Kodesh Baruch Hu (the holy blessed one) for life and for the ability to make another record,” said the Grammy-nominated star, known for bringing religious themes to reggae and alternative rock music.
“In Judaism, we say the blessing Shehecheyanu when we reach a milestone or holiday–basically a thanks for allowing me to reach this occasion. This is my prayer, Shehecheyanu. I also address the pain I felt and continue to feel from my ‘brothers’ who are so quick to throw me under the bus because of my changes,” he wrote.
