Manafest Releases Two Songs From Reborn


Singer/rapper/songwriter/author/skater Manafest returns to his indie roots with Reborn, releasing Oct. 2through The Fuel Music. With tracks that mirror the hunger and predominant hip-hop flavors accompanying this versatile artist's self-released debut a dozen years ago, Manafest offers downloads of two of these new songs beginning today with each iTunes pre-order of Reborn. Featured downloads include "Reborn" and lead single/video, "Let You Drive."

"Let You Drive" also becomes the first music video from Reborn, premiering today Named a Most Added track this week at Christian Hits radio, the song features Manafest along with the pop/punk rhythms of guitarist Jerry McPherson (Jewel, The Neville Brothers) and drummer Miles McPherson (Paramore). The single is about taking your hands off the wheel and knowing that God's got everything under control.

The song "Reborn" is sort of a "Manafest meets Johnny Cash and Mumford & Sons" eclectic offering.

"Being 'reborn,' to me, is starting over and having a second chance. It's like hitting restart, but without having to go back in time and start from the very beginning," says Manafest. "This song is a confession that it's not easy, and that we can all have doubts, but just don't give into them. I fall down, but I rise and go!"

In addition to the musicians named above, joining Manafest in the process of creating Reborn are producers Seth Mosley (Newsboys, Audio Adrenaline, Sanctus Real) and Joel Bruyere (Thousand Foot Krutch). The signature rock vocals of longtime Manafest collaborator Trevor McNevan (Thousand Foot Krutch) lifts the chorus in "Shine," a song about living each day to maximum capacity and 'beaming your light' along the way. Rappers Tedashii and Shonlock vibe alongside Manafest on "I Have A Dream," a track that carries on the message of peace and unity that Martin Luther King, Jr. began. Former Family Force 5 lead vocalist Soul Glow Activatur (Solomon Olds) joins Manafest on the rhythmic party rocker "Stick To Your Gunz," an all-out anthem for surviving the struggle and never going down for the count.

Taking the new music and messages of Reborn, along with his long list of fan favorites, on the road, Manafest is about to wrap-up the summer touring season, having brought his live concert experience to fairs, festivals and parks internationally this summer.
