It’s been five years since Maxwell released his last studio LP blackSUMMERS’night, a continuation of 2009’s BLACKsummers’night that saw 12 soulful cuts and was led by the Hod David-backed “Lake By The Ocean.” Since then, the R&B legend has released one single, “Shame,” which turned out to be his last official drop under his long-standing deal under Columbia Records — just last week, it was announced that he’d officially begun a new partnership between his own Musze imprint and BMG Rights Management. Presumably, this will be where blacksummers’NIGHT, the final piece to Maxwell’s long-expected trilogy, would finally land.

Perhaps looking to get the ball rolling immediately, today (Nov. 16) sees Maxwell making his official return to wax with “Off,” another Hod David collaboration that sounds a bit more experimental than more recent offerings, yet keeps the same vibes that make Maxwell’s discography perfect for the bedroom:

“I’m in the zone, am I alone, I fear that you don’t agree, oh, do you believe, babe, do you feel deceived, babe, decisions like this are not meant to be made alone, can i come through and see, will you receive me, I’m shootin’ all my shots, I won’t miss them, no, aw, I’m givin’ all I got, never ever let this go, oh, no, no, and if I hit that spot, accept the mission, and go off…”

Press play on “Off.” Accompanying the new single is the announcement of Maxwell’s forthcoming tour, which will feature Anthony Hamilton and Joe and kicks off early next year — check the full schedule for that as well.
