I'm curious. I don't like the new single but that could be a good thing for me. I didn't "Luxury Cococure" from Embrya but I liked the rest of the album.

I like the new single and think this album is going to be a very good and strong album, unlike Now and Black.

For some reason I can´t play the video. I´ve tried Proxflow with my Chrome browser but it still won´t play.

Any proxy that you guys would recommend?

Perhaps you need to update your Chrome browser, and then reinstall Proxflow.

The titles are "pure Maxwell" again. The third track could be read as "III", as "3" in Roman numerals, or "Ill", as in "sick". I have hard time imagining how the title "1990x" is going to appear in the lyrics. The album ends with a track called "Night" and that's supposedly what the next record will be called(!).

Just curious, Do you feel like an artist should have a a song on the album that's also the albums titled.?

Excited for this one to come out...

i heard the first single Lake by the Ocean when it was first reloeased and liked it but only listened once or twice before it got stuck in my head...

On 4/21. The song was stuck in my head before, during and after the dreaded news of 4/21. It was very comforting to me that day and still is...

I will forever play this song every year on 4/21 in memory...

Hoping the rest of the CD is as good as the first single.

The greatest live performer of our times was is and always will be Prince.

Remember there is only one destination and that place is U
All of it. Everything. Is U.

Just watched the performance of Lake By The Ocean on Stephen Colbert´s show.

Great performance, looking good, good band.

Can´t wait for the album to come out.

Nah. I don't think it makes a difference. It felt a bit odd to me that Prince seemed to think there needed to be a title track (it got a bit weird with the likes of "Newpower Soul").

Just very unusual that the supposed title of the next record is the last track. Kind of cool too, I guess.

Yeah, that's kinda cool I think(last song Night ) I'm hoping the last song Night ends incomplete and the last album blacksummers'NIGHT picks up concluding the unfinished Night from the previous album.

I use to think an album should include a title track. I've been listening to a lot of Bilal and I've noticed his albums titles are just titles ( usually quirky titles) an there is no title track .

I'm excited. Maxwell does make you wait but I've found the long waiting periods to be worth it. I'm sure I'll love this album as the others.

Love the linked song. I'm not crazy; the name of the album is the same as the last one, save for which letters are capitalized. I remember when he announced the Black Summers' Night trilogy when the first album came out (though we all thought it would unfold a bit quicker lol). I saw him and Jill Scott in concert in support of that first BSN album, and they were both fantastic.

Really looking forward to this. He really is the male Sade with the consistency, time between albums, and the fact that he really has his core "thing" musically. Yeah, they might stray a little bit for a song or two, but their sound is unmistakeable. It doesn't get boring because they do it so incredibly well and they don't release albums that often.

I like how Maxwell makes his fans wait for albums. This suggests that he has a life outside
of catering to those who worship performers/entertainers yet have no clue who the women
are who won the Nobel Peace Prize the past five years, for example.

If Maxwell rejects entertainer pedestal worship from his fans, then he reduces the likelihood
of succombing to MVP-itis, which befell our namesake. Yes, I'm on a soapbox but that's what
I do.

Here's "1990x", and it's a beauty.
