Novel ft. Algebra - Switch It Up

Unreleased

DJBooth’s favorite singer/producer/modern day Rennaissance man Novel has been playing with one hand tied behind his back, but you wouldn’t know it to look at his résumé (Take Over, Call Me, etc. etc. etc.). So now that he’s finally free from a restrictive deal with Capitol Records, I can only image the output we’ll be hearing. Actually, thanks to his new track Switch It Up, I don’t have to imagine at all. Built around a supremely smooth, feel-good beat from Novel with summertime jam written all over it, vocally Switch It Up finds Novel walking the fine line between rapping and singing with skill, waxing philosophic about the need for artists to start putting their art above their bank accounts. Imagine that. As if that wasn’t enough, newcomer Algebra plays the cherry to the track’s vocal sundae with some superb back-up vocals. For visual accompaniment, check out the recently released video for Switch It Up, directed by (who else?) Novel himself. And of course keep it locked for more details on the release of his upcoming project Caligraphy, set to drop soon.
