One of the last few times we mentioned Maxwell on Soulbounce, we were a bit, howdoyousay, irritated. While we were in no way able to predict the economic downturn that this country has found itself in, we were amazed at the cost of ticket prices for what we heard was an amazing show. But it seems as though Maxwell has been in our heads, or least reading our words, the whole time. Not omnipotent nor omnipresent, although he seemed to be speaking like the musical god that he is, Maxwell recently penned a heartfelt letter to his fans via his Facebook fan page that made us pause and then fill with joy as though looking at the sweetest, cuddliest puppy in the whole wide world.
The highlights of the letter include such mots d'amour as,
i'm not the best and i think even less of my contribution to music than my confidence sometimes betrays..i know its been a long time. countless updates on various pages; false starts and empty promises. even i get frustrated with myself...people are mercurial and my droplet is nothing compared to the oceans of you that see what you wish and perceive what you will.
Well, since you put it that way, we'll forgive you a little bit more, Maxwell, darling. Despite his ethereal phrasing, he does give up something substantive:
pretty wings the video is set to be filmed.
the album, pre summer and the world tour.
this summer into the summer of 2010.
we're going everywhere. details to follow.
thank you for waiting,
