So I’ve got some good news and bad news. First the bad: it looks like Booth favorite Novel’s upcoming Audiobiography’s not going to see the light of day after some difficulties with Capitol Records (we’ll have to leave it at that). The good news? The multi-talented producer/singer/rapper/songwriter is determined to let the world hear at least some of the album’s best songs, starting with Caffeine and Cigarettes, a track with a gripping story that was co-written by the always innovative Cody Chesnutt. Over a live drum line, sparkling guitar melody and bouncing background vocals, Novel drops an ode to the power of nicotine and cigarettes, and the sometimes depressing effects of their absence on your mood. Hey, if Jamie can Blame It on the alcohol there’s no reason Novel can’t get away with “I’m sorry baby, I just haven’t had any coffee today.” Hey, it’s worth a try, right? Novel’s now back in the studio recording a brand new album, so you’ll just have to keep it locked for all the latest updates.
