Preparing to deliver one of the most-anticipated R&B events of next year, three-time GRAMMY® Award-winning multiplatinum artist Maxwell announces his new full-length album, blacksummers’NIGHT, out Spring 2022. It notably marks his first release under a newly minted deal with BMG and closes out the trilogy he began with the #1 GRAMMY® Award-winning epic, BLACKsummers’night, in 2009.
Maxwell says: “From announcing a new partnership with BMG for my label Musze to receiving the Legend Award at the upcoming 2021 Soul Train Awards, I couldn’t be more excited to share this new single with loved ones offering a glimpse into NIGHT…”
Maxwell also shares new track “Off” today. The slow-burning single – teeming with the soul singer’s signature seductive spirit – pairs his instantly recognizable vocals with longtime creative partner Hod David’s simmering production and intoxicating instrumentals.
