Maxwell has hinted at his sixth studio album, blacksummers’NIGHT, in a recent social media post. The legendary singer, songwriter and producer shared his third and final installment in a trilogy started in 2009 is still on the way.
“That_NIGHT music takes time; she dressing,” Maxwell wrote in a tweet for a photo of a half moon with light illuminating underneath.
Prior to this, Maxwell began the launch for blacksummers’NIGHT with its planned lead single “Shame” in October 2019. This mid-tempo track earned its place as his 14th top-10 single on the Adult R&B chart. It reached the No. 8 spot and remained the chart for a total of 20 weeks.
Beyond musical releases, Maxwell has been actively touring and connecting with his fans in recent years. He is preparing for NIGHT, The Trilogy Show, a three-night residency in Las Vegas, along with other performances across the country.
Starting Aug. 9, the Encore Theater at Wynn Las Vegas will host Maxwell’s three-night concert series.
Afterward, in September, he is set to make a special appearance, alongside Mariah Carey, at the Hip Hop Forever concert, which Mary J. Blige and Tyrese will headline.
Later this fall, Maxwell will return for the third time to The Kennedy Center for a four-night stint of symphony shows. The shows are scheduled from Oct. 11 to 14 in Washington, D.C.
