Commenting on his new release, Novelle says: “When producing the EP, I wanted to create a unique experience for the listener.

“Visage” has of six tracks and features songs like “Say you love me”, “Midnight Breakwater” and the return of “I Don’t Play (I Want You)”.
Since releasing “The Moment”, Novelle announced his hiatus after a long streak of releases, shows and interviews, leaving fans with one track, now, he’s s back with more music than ever.
“I didn’t expect to release another project so soon, but I could not resist working on another EP, bringing my listeners music that ‘spoke to what I was feeling at the time’. I am delighted that the EP turned out the way it did,” says the star.
Taking to Instagram recently, the star shared: “This EP (Visage) is my escape, my place and my comfort in the temporary utopia.”
Inspired by the rollercoaster that has been 2020, thanks to the global pandemic, Novelle says he wanted to “create music that could have the floating effect”, enough to make everyone forget all about the hardships the world is currently facing and to “give people an escape.”
“Visage” is currently available on all streaming platforms.
