Somebody needs to grab a life preserver and floaties for Novel, because from the sound of things he appears to be drowning and doesn’t want to be saved. On A Song For River, which comes with a high quality set of visuals, Novel, who also co-produced the track with Alex Naylor and Justin Kahler, drops a plethora of aquatic metaphors to let us know just how much he loves his girl. As the Booth fave equips our ears with his unique R&B rooted vocals, a sound which has made him a staple on our pages for the last five years, he canoodles with his girl, smokes a hookah, and even gets behind the camera to capture her beauty himself. For more nautical notes, check out Novel’s Under Water, Overwhelmed EP, which you can preview on DJBooth, and buy on iTunes.
