Matisyahu Releases “Akeda”, Featuring Stu Brooks and Rob Marcher

Matisyahu: AkedaMatisyahu has released his fifth studio album, with bassist Stu Brooks (of his touring band, Dub Trio) producing, and Rob Marcher on bass for four tracks, according to Billboard.

“This record and period of my life deal with madness, listening for and following the voice of God, the inner intuitive voice, a small still sound. This record deals with love, with feelings of brokenness and humility, with humanity, struggle and sacrifice,” Matisyahu says.

Akeda is available on CD, vinyl, and as a digital download (iTunes and Amazon MP3.)
