Novel ft. Amir Taron - Hotels & Heartbreak

Posted 3 years ago
Producer:
Justin Kahler
Album:

Never one to shy away from the darker corners of human experience, Novel has dug even deeper than usual in the lead-up to his next project release. Having lamented the tendency of true love to go sour on I Know Now and used narcotics to dull the ache of romantic anguish on Self Medicating, the ATL Renaissance artist continues his exploration of love’s destructive side with the world premiere of Hotels & Heartbreak. Here, Novel puts on his “rapper” hat to tell the story of a woman whose past traumas, combined with her lack of life choices, drive her to consider selling her body. Joining the headliner over Justin Kahler‘s piano-led boardwork, guest spitter Amir Taron picks up the narrative thread on the closing verse. For this poignant jam and much more, check out the Under Water, Over Whelmed EP when it released later this week via iTunes (and available at DJBooth for stream).
