Today Novi tells us about her new single "The Ad" which comes from the forthcoming new EP "Now I'm There". Here is the story:
It was Easter, and I had this hook in my head.... "pick me up by my bootstraps."
I found it to be ridiculously "grabby." I started singing some ideas over an older yet in progress track that Lee Miles (my producer) had created.
I got the idea of a guy just oozing with such bodacious sex appeal, that all the girls are just fainting and sighing as he walks through the room!
I loved this picture I was mocking up... so the lyrics came effortlessly. "I'm in love with the boy in the ad." Bam.
This guy was far too slick to be real. But, in reality, based somewhat on my boyfriend, who happens to be on a popular TV show. These young gals are panting "in heat" over him, and the concept that you can be so in love with the "idea" of a person just makes for some real good materiel!! It's so funny, we've all been there, drooling over some too hot to trot actor or what not. I sure had my fantasy... Thanks Brad;) So thats a little background.
But the best part is that I finished the demo on "Garageband" mind you, and sent it to my producer Lee. He happened to be at an Easter party. He jammed the track to the whole party over the speakers, once he heard it.
I went over to the same party a little later, and everyone there was like "OMG I love your Song"!!! So I new it was a goodin!!
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
