Perhaps his most stripped-down, elegantly uncompromising collection of recordings since door of Faith produced by the legendary Rick Rubin, Trust in the Heart is a return to the roots of kirtan - a collection of prayers and chants that would feel equally at home being sung in a temple as being cranked up on a car stereo on a cross country sojourn, with melodies that recall both American rock as well as traditional Indian influences.
