Is it finally real??!!!
We were pretty certain that Maxwell would be making his return in 2016, and after talking about his upcoming album with Essence, and being made a headliner at the 2016 Essence Music Festival, it was all more apparent. But, with Max you just never know.
However, on Saturday morning that has all changed, when the R&B singer-songwriter teased the release of his brand new single “Lake By The Ocean” on Instagram. Posting a split up collage of images, including shots of the ocean, and high above a forest, he gave us one short clip with the single cover and audio of the song too!
“in the light of the sun i was dazed i was burned i was lost deep in a storm of a grave had a bed as coffin,” he wrote with multiple posts. “you were only the one that made me fulfilled only the thing that made me reveal my destiny was before us a beach of a forest anything ain’t nothing it’s just… it’s just you just us nobody but.. love on trust on us nobody now can we swim a lake by the ocean we’ll be one like drops in slow motion..” #lakebytheocean #LTBO #maxwell #summers #20thyearanniversaryofmaxwellmusic”
According to his post, the song is due out on March 8! Check out the preview below.
