The 13-song set was recorded in numerous locations, including Jamaica, New York, Los Angeles and Virginia, over the past year. It features collaborations with numerous artists and producers, among them prolific reggae rhythm team Sly & Robbie, Stephen McGregor, David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Sublime) and members of Fishbone. Light retains the reggae/dub feel that Matisyahu is known for, but on several songs he explores new territory. "It kind of just happened," he said of the varied styles on "Light." "The more I've been involved in music, the more I've been able to say I like this kind of guitar sound, this kind of production. So, I didn't feel constricted by anything." On cuts such as the roots-oriented "Thunder" and the folk-tinged "Silence," Matisyahu abandons the rap-style vocal approach for melodic singing. "A person's voice has a natural tendency to it -- you listen to different artists, you listen to different people, and you start to subconsciously mold your voice to how you like it," he said. "I spent all this time listening to Bob Marley, a lot of dance hall -- and when I started writing raps and rhymes, it started coming out sounding like a version of those artists. I spent the last four years seriously working on my voice: taking lessons and trying to rediscover my natural voice." NEW YORK (Billboard)
