As ‘NIGHT’ falls, Maxwell decides to release his new single titled “Shame.”
Backed by a strong baseline, the smooth singer serenades his love interest in his signature form. “If you follow me see mysteries up in the stars / Like a rocket ship / Your clothes, I wanna take them, take off,” he sings.
Speaking on “Shame,” which he calls a “modern love song,” Maxwell mentioned to Pitchfork, “The song is about removing that mask of expectation and letting go of the shame of being real and vulnerable. The shadow of shame can only be broken when we unveil ourselves, and recognize that we that we are all human—flawed yet perfect, broken yet stronger with each obstacle.”
“Shame” is the lead single from his forthcoming album NIGHT, due in early 2019. The LP will conclude his BLACKSUMMERSNIGHT trilogy, which he launched nine years ago. The new record marks his second release of the year behind “We Never Saw It Coming.”
