GRiZ‘s path to his upcoming album has been nothing short of exciting. As fans await the release of Ride Waves, his newest single offers a perfect glimpse of what to expect. Linking up with Matisyahu, this pleasant collaboration surprised many, but can definitely be considered a musical match made in heaven. “A New Day” tackles the concept and travesty of gun control in America. With their heads in the right frame of mind, the two pooled their artistic intellect to produce an uplifting ballad. GRiZ’s Ride Waves album drops April 5th.

Matisyahu’s voice speaks volumes to so many people. He has this unique ‘way’ of speaking and I am infinitely humbled that we were able to link up an idea that I think is very necessary today. – GRiZ
The song kind of wrote itself and it came at a time when this was obviously what was going on around us and in our consciousness. When we walked into the studio we knew we wanted to make a meaningful song but we didn’t walk in there with this specific intention (addressing gun violence). When we came into that artistic place where we were like “let’s open up and figure out what is going on inside of us’, this is what rose to the top. – Matisyahu
