Soul Singer Maxwell Returns with BlackSummer’s Night Album

Soul star Maxwell has finally returned with his long awaited new album blackSUMMERS’ night,
the second part of a trilogy of soul wrenching R&B albums that sees
the auteur explore the boundaries of his music whilst still staying
true to his foundations.
The singer and songwriter recorded blackSUMMERS’ night
in New York over the last several years. “I’m working with all of the
same people on the new album. It’s always been a family type of thing,
and I think that that’s what, maybe, has made it special. It feels, to
me, even better than what we did twenty years ago,” he said recently.image003
Maxwell redefined classic soul music in April of 1996 when he released his critically acclaimed debut on Columbia, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite.
It earned Grammy nominations, double platinum status and RIAA gold for
the single, “Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder).” The platinum albums Embrya (1998) and Now (2001) followed. After eight years, 2009’s BLACKsummers’ night
debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and won two Grammys, including
Best R&B Album. To date, Maxwell has achieved 13 gold and platinum
certifications from the RIAA.
