Recently premiering on Billboard, Matisyahu released his third single "Broken Car" pulled from his upcoming album, Akeda. They also had a question and answer session with him. His previous two tracks, "Confidence, " and "Watch The Walls Melt Down" were featured from the same upcoming album. Akeda will be released on June 3 through Elm City Music. Announced to the public on May 8, Matisyahu told Billboard “For awhile everything was about this perfection I was striving for as a person and as a spiritual being and as a musician and an artist. But part of getting older and continuing to do this is acceptance of others and myself around me and celebrating the brokenness of it all.” Check out his Billboard session HERE.

Matisyahu has a very busy schedule ahead with TEDxColombia, where he will be speaking and performing, along with release week shows. One is at New York City's Mercury Lounge and the other is at LA's Grammy Museum.The evening at the Grammy Museum will include a discussion moderated by Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman, and an intimate performance by Matisyahu with all proceeds benefitting the Grammy Foundation. See details below.

The material for the album was written both in Matisyahu’s Los Angeles home and while on tour. Matisyahu states, “This record and period of my life deal with madness, listening for and following the inner intuitive voice, a small still sound. This record deals with love, with feelings of brokenness and humility, with humanity, struggle, and sacrifice.”
Referencing the recording production for this soon-to-be-record, Matisyahu says “It was very much an in-house project.The vocal and musical styles are drawn from many places in order to create my current sound, which cannot be categorized very easily.”
