The wait is over! Just two years after his hit album, Dus Pintele Yid, Lipa is gearing up to release his 14th studio album. Lipa’s motto is “new heart, a real art” and this time around he collaborated with Matt Dubb aka Mutti Weiss of EvanAl fame, in order to break new grounds in the Jewish Music industry. Now Introducing the future of JM: electronic dance music!! The all new 12 track album due to hit stores on July 27th, features brand new compositions by Lipa himself. It is fresh, hip, futuristic while maintaining that classic Lipa feel. Each track on the album is unique and different from the next. It covers genres from house to dubstep, to trance. Matt Dubb added “this is the first time these genres are being covered on a Jewish album.”
To whet the music palette, Lipa presents the first single, Ben Fayga, composed by newcomer Meir Rosenberg. Just a few short months ago, when Meir became a chosson, his father contacted Lipa to sing one of his original compositions by the wedding. After listening to the demo, Lipa fell in love with the composition, and not just insisted to sing it live, but demanded to record it for his upcoming album. The clip from the wedding has since gone viral. When asked why another Reb Nachman song, Lipa responded “this song fit me like a glove.” It is also dedicated to his shul which has a huge presence of Brelov Chasiddim.
