SENSATIONAL POP SONGSTRESS
RELEASES NEWEST SINGLE
FEATURING PRETTY LITTLE LIARS STAR TYLER BLACKBURN
“Tyler Blackburn teams up with electro-pop singer NOVI for amazing ‘Long Day’ Duet…”
(NEW YORK, NEW YORK) – Kick Kick Snare once proclaimed that, “NOVI has been able to harness that sweet spot between electro-pop, folk rock and soul.” Quite frankly, we couldn’t have said it much better ourselves. And, oh what a sweet spot it is.
Today, NOVI releases her newest single, “Long Day,” which sets the tone for her richly textured and much anticipated forthcoming album. Produced by Lee Miles (The Red Jumpsuit, Puddle of Mudd) and Stelouse (Republic Records), “Long Day” is a soulful duet with long time friend and Pretty Little Liars star Tyler Blackburn.
“Long Day” officially drops today, August 18 on all DSPs.

“I was feeling a bit un-inspired,” shares NOVI, “so I decided to caravan up to Oregon, with my boyfriend, Max Liberty and Producer Lee Miles to write some new material, and shed my skin a bit. We set up shop, in a screened in porch, looking over a giant lake. It set the tone to be shamelessly creative and free. Lee had the bright idea to use these natural elements (record them ourselves and set the tone for the music) so we did just that, getting sound-bites from things like a waterfall, or banging metal tools, stomping up stairs and more. We really wanted these natural elements to portray the feeling of the location. And we had a blast along the way.”
An Oregon native, NOVI – whose real name is Carolyne Neuman – is nothing if not a creative risk taker. Her commitment to exploring musical genres has proven artistically liberating, for both NOVI and her dedicated fans.
NOVI’s songs are vibrant and expressive, and are filled with everything from quirky bass licks, to rap-infused dance rhythms to soulful, penetrating melodies. Her song, “All the Way,” could be heard on the hit television series ‘One Tree Hill’ and her song, “Make a Scene,” was featured on MTV’s ‘Faking It.’
NOVI is licensed on several up-and-coming television series, and has no plans to stop making beautifully eclectic music anytime soon. Keep your ears open for updates on NOVI.
