Maxwell has announced a North American tour to take place between April & August this year.
The singer released his debut album “Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite” in 1996, and has gone on to release three more records, all of which charted in the US top three.
He last released an album in 2009, with “BLACKsummers’night” getting to number one, and starting off a new trilogy. The second, long-awaited installment of that trilogy is set to be released on 1st July, and is titled “blackSUMMERS’night”.
He’s now announced a tour of North America in support of his new music, and it begins on 23rd April in New Orleans, LA. It continues until 7th August with a date in Jacksonville, FL.
Maxwell recently unveiled his new single “Lake By The Ocean”, the lead track from his new album. Talking about it in an interview with EW, he said: “I hope people don’t hate me for taking so long to release new music — but I want my real life to be in these songs.
“I don’t want them to be written quickly. I’m not a typical sort of pop artist. I’m not really concerned about being No. 1.”
