Of the six songs that make up Novel‘s most recent project, five have been featured in The DJBooth to date. Clearly, number six must be a colossal dud, a lackluster track marring an otherwise flawless set… right? Wrong; as it matter of fact, it seems like the multi-talented Booth fave may have saved the best for last. A slow-burning ballad addressed to an estranged S.O., Pride & Joi finds the ATL native pouring his heart out over a lush, melancholy beat by frequent collaborator Justin Kahler. In addition to starring in the record’s simple, emotionally-affecting official video, Novel directs it with the help of Jay Blakk and Melanie Burke. If you haven’t already copped Under Water, Overwhelmed, you can still stream and purchase the November 2012 EP right here in The DJBooth.
