It is always impressive to see artists build life long followings, giving them an ability to focus their time elsewhere before returning to the music scene and still be received with love/support. The talented Maxwell is back after almost 7 years with a brand new single and yep, an album is on the way later this year (as soon as this Summer – July 1st).
i’ll be in new orleans july 1st when the album drops!!!! @essencefest

His return track “Lake By The Ocean” is a beautiful reminder of what a pure voice sounds like in R&B. We still have a few like Jake&Papa who still have strong vocals that translate between the studio and the stage but it is a rare thing nowadays. If you want to get a glimpse of Maxwell after his hiatus, catch him in New Orleans at the Jazz & Heritage Fest later this month or Essence Fest – check here for constant dates.
Enjoy the brand new video from Maxwell. Welcome Back.
