It’s been a minute since we have heard from Night Lovell. The Ottawa rapper has amassed a loyal following all through his younger run, largely partly to his droning, shadowy aesthetic, which has yielded bangers like “Still Cold” and “Dark Light.” At the onset December, Lovell teased his upcoming challenge Goodnight Lovell, promising “a darkish story” for the lots, tailor-made towards the sensibilities his day one followers. Now, the rapper has taken his rollout to the following degree, sharing a potential album cowl and launch date for the brand new album.
As now, followers can search for the challenge to reach on January 25th, 2019, slightly over a month away. The information bodes nicely for these anxious about an early-year drought, provided that 2018 was one the strongest years in current reminiscence. In honor the approaching drop, Lovell took to IG to preview a brand new banger, which options some demonic pitched down vocals and surreal visible imagery. Check that out under, and brace yourselves for a darkish story, colder than the Canadian winters.
It’s been months since Ottawa rapper Night Lovell introduced his upcoming album, Good Night Lovell. At the time, he promised a “darkish story,” which might be launched at any time when it was “prepared.” Though it has been comparatively quiet on the Lovell entrance since, it will seem that the wheels have as soon as once more kicked into movement. That is to say, maybe we’re reaching the competion level, and thus, the eventual launch. We can solely hope.
In any case, it will seem that Lovell is as anxious as we’re. The younger Soundcloud phenomenon took to Twitter to offer an replace on the mission, switching to ALL-CAPS for the event. “I CANT WAIT TO SHARE DIS SHIT WIT YOU N****,” writes Lovell. “ITS BEEN SO MUCH TRAPPED IN MY HEAD I WANT U TO EXPERIENCE TOO. ADDING FINAL TOUCHES TO GOODNIGHTLOVELL. A WHOLE FUCKING EXPERIENCE.”
Clearly, the mission is certainly nearing the completion phases, although in our expertise, “closing touches” is a wide-ranging subject. Still, it is clear that Lovell’s voice will likely be heard within the new future, and we will sit up for experiencing his “Dark Story” collectively.
Night Lovell is one the best kept secrets in the rap game. If you know, you know. The Ottawa-born rapper was ahead the curve when it comes to Soundcloud rappers popping f, and he did it with a certain amount discreetness and style. He’s become an underground favourite across the world — from Russia to Canada, and as fans know, it’s been over two years since his last project (!). Thus, when Lovell shared on social media over the weekend that his new album is at least on the way (no proper release date as yet), it was met with the appropriate amount excitement– almost 1,000 comments and 50,000 Likes.
The new album is titled Good Night Lovell, the rapper revealed, and it’ll be here as soon as it’s ready. That makes sense. On Instagram, he wrote that this project is for the day 1 fans (which is most his fanbase, one might argue), and that it’s going to be a “dark story” (again, we sort expect that as day 1 fans). He echoed this on twitter, writing, “NEW ALBUM, WHENEVER ITS READY.” If you missed out on Lovell’s earlier releases, namely, Red Teenage Melody, it’s not too late: check out the project here.
Although we haven’t received a full-length release from Lovell since 2016, he has given us, sparingly, a few loose cuts, including a collaboration with fellow underground darlings $uicide Boy$, “Joan Arc.”
