Maxwell Returns with Refreshing Single “Lake by the Ocean”

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).

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.
