“Neve Tlaot” is Yonatan Razel‘s new single ahead of his new album, that comes 5 years after the smashing success of his last album “Bein HaTzlilim“. The last album reached platinum status and included the hits “Katonti”, “Hagaagua”, “Bein Hatzlilim”, and “Ashira”. The album also won the song of the year award from ACUM in Israel and Idud Hayetzira award from the government of Israel.
The new album due out n the coming months will include 12 songs all written, composed, and produced by Yonatan himself. Yonatan describes the new song: “I remember the moment the song was born, in my living room in Jerusalem after some deep inner reflection, I started to look at the world in a different light. To look at life as a journey, a journey of highs and lows that lead to deep heartfelt happiness. Not to always expect peace and tranquility and to be disappointed all the time rather the opposite, but to understand and appreciate and be ready for the tests in life which are meant to bring us to a higher place at the end, to a sweeter place. As I played this to myself, I thought about us, our situation sometimes and let out a scream: “Hashkifa M’maon kodshecha u’barech… ubarech…”
