Ladies and gentlemen, it is official. It is not a fluke, tease, or unfulfilled promise this time. Maxwell's new album, BLACKsummers' night, set for release on July 7th, will shortly be a reality. Not only is there an honest-to-God single with a video that was released during SoulBounce's hiatus, but here is the album's cover art to further drive the point home that some new Maxwell is on the horizon. Though I can speak only for myself, this portrait of the artist in profile, eyes cast downward and frozen in perpetual stillness is exactly how I saw him last night as he longingly surveyed my womanly form, starting at my dangerously tall pumps, past my heaving dress, and on up to the moist, twisted coils on top of my head. Or maybe that was that my dream from last night. In any case, feel free to reimagine your own naughty fantasy and paste this photo on the ceiling above your bed, junior high-style.
