Fans have been waiting and he's been dropping teases across social media.
But now, fam, the wait is officially over as new sounds from the vocal chords of Maxwell have finally arrived!
"Lake By The Ocean," the first single from the crooners much anticipated album, blackSUMMERS'night, is reminiscent of his earlier hits such as the bittersweet love song, Pretty Wings and Ascension (Don't Ever Wonder). Maxwell's vocals continue to bring a slinky and sensual vibe.
In a release sent to JETMag.com, the singer expressed: "Heartbreak is always at the core of most of the things I write. [Lake By The Ocean] is about a vast unfettered love deeply connected to the intimacy one is able to share with another after a time of great struggle and betrayal.
He added, "It's an expression of cleansing and escape, a washing away of the past and joining forces in love with the beauty of romance, nature and the earth."
Take in the sounds below.
As the second part of a trilogy, dating back to 2009 with BLACKsummers'night, blackSUMMERS'night is sure to bring the seductive tales that made us love Maxwell's music from the beginning.
But wait…there's even more good news. Keep your eyes and ears open because come April 11, Maxwell will announce his summer tour dates. Until then, enjoy the single which is also available on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Spotify, and Google Play. *
