Our favorite reggae star Matisyahu
is out with "Step Out Into The Light," the official lead single off of his forthcoming album out later this year. It's nearly 8 minutes long and goes in a more hip hop direction. Heavy on drums and bass, it has a dark undertone and at first, sounds like one of those songs that would start playing at the end of a thriller as the main character walks away in slow motion after doing something epic. So yeah, the song itself is pretty epic, but after an intense guitar solo, the second half takes an unexpected turn - beautiful trumpets enter as he ditches the rap and starts singing, "you've been searching, you've been moving all of your life,"
radiating a chilling sense of hope. If the rest of the album sounds like this song, Matisyahu is about to deliver something the whole world needs right now.
