New From Maxwell: ''We Never Saw It Coming''




After teasing a new song & video on social media the past week, Maxwell decides to come through and share a new single called “We Never Saw It Coming,” which is a slow-burning ballad.

I like the song, he’s always done these sort of haunting ballads really well I.e W/as my girl, Know These Things. Not entirely convinced about him tackling social commentary but I’ll be interesting to see If it’s just for this song or over a whole album.

I don't think this is from "Night", possibly just a political statement.

It would be ironic as the lead single for blacksummer'sNIGHT since there seems to be a wide unknown berth between the trilogy that has lost its appeal.

I agree with you about it being a political statement and probably a stand-alone release. It reminds me of when George Michael released "The Grave", a Don MacLean cover, as a protest to the war in Iraq.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

The song is from an upcoming project called The Glass House. In the Tidal-exclusive video for "We Never Saw it Coming", Maxwell and his family see a nuclear mushroom cloud rising slowly above skyscrapers in the distance.
