I’m going to assume this isn’t your first time on DJBooth and skip over the Novel introductions. (If it is, welcome. You’ve got about seven million dope Novel tracks to catch up on; get busy). Instead, I’ll just cut right to the chase and say that the singer/producer/songwriter/freestyle alum has once again redefined the meaning of musical versatility on his new track State of Loneliness. Having already delivered a cello-infused baby maker (Take Over) and narcotic-driven rider (Caffeine & Cigarettes), on State of Loneliness Novel draws his inspiration from a mixture of classic soul and gospel, producing a track that slowly smokes up a smoldering piano and guitar riff. Even more impressively, State of Loneliness is one of his best vocal performances yet, and that’s saying something given his mile-long resume. Frankly, it’s only a matter of time before the man cures cancer. State of Loneliness is the first offering from his upcoming mixtape Legato Blues Summer, obviously set to heat up your speakers this summer, and as that wasn’t enough, he’s also got a new album Caligraphy in the works, due out “soon.”
