NEW MUSIC: Maxwell – ‘1990x-
Certain artists have a shelf life, simply because their output runs tired. Maxwell is not one of them. As you can tell by listening to his sultry new single “1990x,” the veteran singer makes timeless tunes that have no expiration date.
If his stellar last single didn’t make that clear, this dreamy follow-up should help remind listeners just how suave this one-time MTV Unplugged participant still is, despite dropping albums once a decade or so. The record feels like a magic carpet ride through a sexy version of outer space, as Max holds listeners close and serenades us amongst the stars. Don’t expect to get sick of this trip anytime soon.
Maxwell’s blackSUMMERS’night album drops on July 1. Pre-order the project on iTunes.
