Can anyone identify this song?

The last time I head the track in question was in 2001.

The intro (keyboard/guitar/strings possibly wind sound effect) builds up to a male voice saying "it's a beautiful day" (several times, slowly, almost whispering).

The artist has a slight Brooklyn accent and doesn't ever actually sing.

It's not any of the songs or albums that comes up in google for "Beautiful Day".

The words "telephone" or "pop" might be in the name of the track, band or album.

I would describe the music as pop, hip hop, electronica.

Thank you!

If it helps, the artist sounds a little bit like Tricky..

No, but thanks for the ideas. It's obscure (enough that I haven't been able to find it via google for ten years).. definitely ten years old. Not found in google..

Gandharvas - First day of spring?. I know it's a reach but I have always loved this song, and they do kinda whisper It's a beautiful day.

Wow, there are a LOT of songs called "Beautiful Day."
From YouTube, a few that slightly resemble your criteria:
"Beautiful Day" by 3 Colours Red?
"Beautiful Day" by Scott Weiland?
"Beautiful Day" by Jackie Wilson?

It's not Telepopmusik and Breathe is it? It says "another day" not "beautiful day", and it's a woman not a man, but it does have tele and pop in the name and is electronic pop...
