Will You Buy His Album?

Tuesday, May 12, 2009


In 1996, this man could do no wrong: cast within a trilogy (he, D'angelo and to a lesser extent Erykah Badu) of earthy-sounding new music (they dubbed it 'Neosoul,' despite the artists' frustrations with the term), the future of the music world seemed so bright.
Then, as quickly as it started, the lights began to flicker. Maxwell's two subsequent releases got lukewarm responses at best. Badu's eccentric ways got her labeled as "quirky" ("I'm an artist," was her only defense.)

And D'angelo? Drugs, not unlike Marvin and Donnie before him, did the Prince idol in.
Years have passed and now Maxwell is set to re-emerge this summer with his first album in nearly a decade. I don't usually do this ... but peep the first single here.

I hope Maxwell puts it down when he arrives back on the music scene. His voice is such a talent, and we need it now a days.
