Grammy-winning singer/songwriter/producer Novel released his previous project Red Wine & Ambien II last year (2014), and he’s already back with more heat in the form of Mood Indigo, his ninth mixtape project. Headed by the single “Die A Little,” Mood Indigo is home to 12 tracks of both originals and covers, including Terence Trent D’Arby’s “Sign Your Name" and Coldplay’s “True Love.”
Frequent collaborators Joe Budden and Crooked I appear on the set, while former Nickelodeon actor/singer-songwriter Leon Thomas and emcee Lecrae feature as well. The very real “Letter To The Badge” is the artist’s memo to those in law enforcement who unjustly abuse the law. The title track “mood indigo” fits its title with moody piano chords as Novel issues a break-up decree.
Overall, Novel delivers another solid set! Stream and download Mood Indigo:
