Maxwell Returns with First Record in Seven Years Posted on 11 Apr 19:38

The last time New York's own Maxwell released an album was back in 2009. The project was entitled BLACKsummers'night and would reach number one on the US charts. Seven years later, Maxwell is making a comeback, starting with this new record 'Lake By The Ocean.' The song will be featured on his upcoming album blackSUMMERS'night, due out July 1st. Along with the new project, the Brooklyn singer announced his North American tour, with shows kicking off on April 23rd in New Orleans. Says Maxwell, 'I hope people don't hate me for taking so long to release new music - but I want my real life to be in these songs.' We can't wait to hear the full project.
