GRiZ has just released the fourth single “A New Day (feat. Matisyahu)” from his forthcoming LP Ride Waves. The track was written days after last year’s tragedy at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, and is a result of the two artists having nothing else on their minds besides the horrible event that had just occurred. As a response, the two pooled their artistic intellect to produce a ‘A New Day’ as their cry to end this senseless gun violence.
While “A New Day” is indeed an ad-hoc meeting of worlds, its sonic quality, and lyrical nature fall seamlessly into the musical styles that both artists possess. Matisyahu’s uplifting lyrics and emotive melodies fly high while GRiZ’s production stands strong at its core. This is their conversational input delivered through their creative medium and reach.
