video ‘stache: MATISYAHU Seeking a Spark

After shaving off his signature facial hair and declaring “No more Chassidic reggae superstar” last December, Matisyahu has set a July 17 release date for his fourth studio album, Spark Seeker.

MATISYAHUHe has also revealed the first leg of an extensive North American co-headlining tour with The Dirty Heads that kicks off on July 8.

Fans can purchase tickets and take advantage of the special ticket packages which includes ticket, any Matisyahu T-shirt sold at the merch table, and… a special mystery gift available when you pickup your T-shirt. Fans must present a copy of the receipt to the merch booth to pickup their items day of the performance here.

“This is definitely pushing the boundaries of what I’ve done before… It’s a new kind of record for me,” Matisyahu says in a statement. While “Spark Seeker” only includes a handful of guest vocalists, Shyne — the former Bad Boy Records rapper who spent nine years in prison before heading to Israel and becoming an Orthodox Jew — appears on two album tracks, “Buffalo Soldier” and “King Crown of Judah.”

The socially conscious rapper (real name: Matthew Paul Miller) recorded the forthcoming full-length in Los Angeles, New York and Israel, and tapped Kool Kojak to produce the entire album, according to a press release. Watch the making of Matisyahu’s new video for the first single “Sunshine” below:

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty
    five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
