Almost 4 years ago, Maxwell was scheduled to release a new album, BlackSUMMERS’night, the follow-up to BLACKsummers’night. But that was put on hold because of medical issues with vocal swelling and hemorrhaging.
Maxwell fans, rejoice!
Not only was his new song “Lake by the Ocean” released, but the album will be released on July 1.
Maxwell took to Facebook Live to talk about his album, and let’s just say fans were overjoyed.
