Matisyahu has released a brand new Chanukah song, “Miracle,” on iTunes, one week ahead of the Festival of Light, his fifth annual series of shows celebrating Chanukah. An uplifting pop gem arriving just in time for the holiday, “Miracle,” produced by Dr. Luke protÃ©gÃ© Kool Kojak (Flo Rida, Katy Perry, Ke$ha), is drenched in a joyful spirit and features chiming synths, bouncing beats and an irresistible chorus. “Miracle” is now streaming on Matisyahu’s web site www.matisyahuworld.com and is available on iTunes here: http://bit.ly/MatisyahuMiracle.
Matisyahu says, â€œThere are so many Christmas songs out there. I wanted to give the Jewish kids something to be proud of. We’ve got Adam Sandler’s song, which is hilarious, but I wanted to try to get across some of the depth and spirituality inherent in the holiday in a fun, celebratory song. My boy Kojak was in town so at the last minute we went into the studio in the spirit of miracles and underdogs and this is what we came up with. Happy Hannukah!â€
Matisyahu, backed by his band The Dub Trio, will kick off the Festival of Light at Brooklyn, NY,’s Brooklyn Bowl on November 29th.
