Matisyahu’s ‘Miracle’ EP and tour dates

Miracle Matisyahu EP

Last Chanukah, Hasidic Jew reggae/rock artist Matisyahu released pop style Chanukah song “Miracle” for his fans.  The response was so positive that this year, he released the “Miracle” EP  on November 21, 2011 (Black Friday..haha!) via Fallen Sparks Records/Thirty Tigers and RED MusicMTV.com dubbed “Miracle” as “the greatest Chanukah song ever.” The track was produced by Dr. Luke’s protégé Kool Kojak who’s worked with artists such as Katy Perry, Ke$ha, and Flo Rida.  Matisyahu explained:

“I recorded this aiming to make a celebratory, feel good song that still gets across the depth of Judaism rather than the typical watered down Jewish humor about matzah balls and Chanukah Harry. I’m trying to make the Jewish kids out there proud.”

Check out the video for “Miracle”

The “Miracle” EP features alternate versions of “Miracle” including a track with his band Dub Trio, guest vocals by rapper Shyne (available via iTunes only), a remix by freshman UC Boulder student Miniweapon, a beatboxing and acoustic version.  You can purchase a five song “Miracle” EP on iTunes (with a bonus track, see track listing below) and matisyahuworld.com.

  1. It’s a great song! I just recorded it with accompaniment by the wonderful guitarist Andre Bush, coincidentally releasing it not long before Matisyahu released his new versions this year. Check it out:
