In early 2020, like many musicians around the world, Novena’s plans for their debut album Eleventh Hour – ironically all about time and mortality – were upturned. Time felt like it had come to a standstill. So, bunkered down in quarantine in the UK, Novena set to work on a series of “Live From Home” performances culminating in a live EP, the aptly titled Live From Home EP, which was released on July 30, 2021. Now, bringing the Eleventh Hour chapter to a close, Novena are proud to present 22 minutes of new music in a new 3-track EP, The Stopped Clock.” The single and video for the track ‘Bury A Friend’ (Billie Eilish cover) is out today.
As an epilogue to Eleventh Hour, The Stopped Clock is a dynamic, heartfelt exploration of the collective trauma of the past year. Expect all the bombast of their debut album, focused and refined into just three tracks. On October 1, 2020, time comes to an end.
Novena is also hosting a much delayed album release show for Eleventh Hour in London on October 30th. They’ll be playing material from both Eleventh Hour and The Stopped Clock EP.
