Novaa – a songwriter and producer based in Berlin releases an atmospheric, vulnerable single ‘She’s a Star’ . The song is a confession of Novaa’s desires as an artist and a human being. ‘She’s a Star’ gives goosebumps, makes you contemplate and truly listen to the lyrical layer. Ethereal vocals and minimalist instrumental layer create an almost meditative piece that has the power to stop the time.
This song is the core piece of the album. It talks about why I make music and why I created the Novaa space. To me, it’s always just as much about the relationship with myself as it is about my relationship with others. I deeply long for people to see me fully, genuinely and I think very often I and people in my surrounding confuse that with me wanting to be famous and popular. Deep connection is something rare to me, I find it in making music, and the things I create with Novaa. That’s what the one side of the song is about, the part that is very me, very Novaa.
The other side of it – the lyrics in the chorus say that very directly – is about the potential that is covered, hidden in lots of places, that lots of people can’t or are not allowed to act out on and enjoy. There are many obstacles in our society that block the potential of people, the happiness of people. I see it in my close surrounding, in myself, online, on the news and it breaks my heart on a regular basis. My wish and hope are that my music is a safe and open space for people to take breaks from the shit things that this world is throwing at them at times and also for them to simply shine and feel good about the light and dark spaces that they hold. Living the full spectrum of what it means to be a self, yourself and feel free to explore and enjoy that. That’s what I want for my Novaa space, and also the space of this song and album.
