Maxwell is ready to shoot some new tracks all over your face. Yes, it’s a new song from the male chanteuse himself. It’s called “Gods” and it doesn’t stray to far away from her previous much-loved work.
Maxwell’s return is slated for July 7th, 2009. That’s if they don’t change it for the umpteenth time. The first summer is BLACK from the BlackSummersNight trilogy that Maxwell has been working on no for almost a decade. “Pretty Wings” is a hot off the press download now and everything is smooth sailing for him right now because there is so much demand for new stuff. Maybe he can resurrect the ailing state of neosoul. Jill Scott’s gone to have a baby and Erykah Badu is unreliable. No word on the Ankh as of yet.
Finally, news from Maxwell who has taken a hiatus so long that he might well be considered a new artists. I seriously don’t understand how an artist would abandon their fan base for so long and then expect a swift return. Last time he was around was with Now. That was 8 years ago. But, now he is about to release a trilogy of album titled Black Summer’s Night. The first one is Black and it slated for a summer release. The new piece of information we get is the track listing. Click below for it.
Will Black Summer’s Night will ever see the light of day, but this live performance gives us hope. And the direction of the music is more big band less neosoul. But, for all the lo-tempo fans there is one song that surfaced titled “Pretty Wings” that will definately tickle your fancy. Click below to hear it:
