The world of Jewish Music is getting ready to answer it’s biggest question yet. Are you ready to take a “Leap of Faith”?
Lipa Schmeltzer, one of the most interesting and loved singers of our current era, has a history already of also having one of the most interesting and exciting careers of this era. His last album featured some very different music, stylistically, and while many people enjoyed it, it was criticized by many fans for being too different and not enough like his mega hit A Poshiter Yid.
It seems from everything we are hearing that Lipa is looking to return to the style that made Poshiter Yid his most loved album. A few weeks ago JMR’s SPLASHNEWS had this conversation with Lipa.
It will be a little different [than APY] because it will have a lot of singable songs and won’t just be art. I realized that the way people listen to music has changed so I need to have catchy, easy to learn songs, but I also want the art so I will mix and blend both.
With that, hearing the name of the album sends a chill of excitement throughout Lipa’s fanbase and all of our fellow Jewish Music fans. The CD will be called Leap of Faith, (Lipa Faith?) and we can’t wait to see what Lipa is bringing!!
