The acclaimed vocalist is on tour this summer behind his first studio album in eight years, Black Summers Night (Columbia). The finger-snapping single “Pretty Wings” recently reached No. 1 on the Urban Adult charts.

“Yes, after an extended hiatus the sexy ambassador of soul has returned with a brand new look and a fresh yet deliciously vintage sound,” reads a statement on Maxwell’s press page. The same artist who brought us classic songs like ‘Sumthin’ Sumthin’,’ ‘Ascension (Don’t Ever Wonder),’ and ‘Lifetime’ — not to mention the unforgettably ethereal cover of Kate Bush’s ‘This Woman’s Work’ — is back with a challenging, mature, sensual, courageous, and emotionally open album.
