VIDEO PREMIERE: Matisyahu “So High So Low”

Matisyahu’s long and prodigious career has included touring the world, releasing five studio albums and selling 3.5 million tracks to date, and now on the 10th anniversary of his breakthrough album Live at Stubb’s he is releasing a new album that celebrates the fan favorite original. Live at Stubb’s Vol. III takes a new look at Matisyahu’s extensive catalogue with stripped down and reworked versions of favorites such as “King Without a Crown”.

Glide is premiering the video for “So High So Low,” which originally was featured on 2009’s Light, an album that sat atop the Billboard reggae charts for 34 weeks. Of course the former Hasidic reggae artist has now taken a more alt-rock look and flavor to his musical presentation and this fan favorite composition gets quite the rocking makeover complete with some tight improvisation.  Matisyahu explained to Glide how this tune has changed up from the prior version-  “This song continues to be relevant to me lyrically in the same way it originally did. Highs and lows, extremes, etc.  What does change in this song every time we play it is the third section which is completely improvised.”

To support the album, Matisyahu announced fall/winter tour dates with stops including San Francisco, Denver, Baltimore and more – see the full list of tour dates below.

Over the course of the tour, Matisyahu and his band will present an evening of stripped-back arrangements highlighting the music that launched his career while taking fans of all ages on a journey through the evolution of Live at Stubb’s to his most recent release Akeda. This tour reconnects Matisyahu with musical collaborators from his early touring days, including Live at Stubb’s guitarist Aaron Dugan
