Maxwell Comes Through With The Feels On His New Single "Gods"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Next Friday, Maxwell will deliver on all of the promises with the release of his first album in 7 years, blackSUMMERS'night.And while there's certainly been no shortage of new juice from the Brooklyn-born soul star in the last few months (hear "1990x" and "Lake By The Ocean") today he's given us one last freebie to hold us over until the album's official release. "Gods" is a reminder that Maxwell's silk-smooth vox pairs well with just about anything you put it against. Here he tries his hand with a synth-sparked slow-burner, and does so to brilliant results. Hear the latest from Maxwell and if it's good to your earhole, pre-order your copy of his new album on wax from the OKP Shop down below. Catch him if you can on the road, the dates for which are listed just below the player.
