Maxwell

In the 1990s, Maxwell rose to stardom singing seductive, ‘70s-inspired tunes, or as some might call it: baby-making music. With albums such as 1996’s Urban Hang Suite and 2001’s Now, the singer pioneered the so-called neo soul movement which included artists like D’Angelo, Lauren Hill and Jill Scott. But in his latest music video for “Glass House (We Never Saw It Coming),” Maxwell turns his attention from the bedroom to the outside world, pleading for us to “love each other or perish,” and proving that even soul men can’t escape the pressures of the modern world. “We’ve never been so divided, scattered around like useless ashes,” he sings. It’s a bold first single from an artist known to take unusually long breaks in between albums. But it’s not the first time the singer has shown this level of emotional depth. Maxwell’s exquisite 2001 cover of the Kate Bush song "This Woman’s Work" is one of his most enduring hits, and in recent years, has been reinterpreted as an anthem for civil rights. On Tuesday, Maxwell brings his 50 Intimate Nights tour to the Majestic, performing over two decades’ worth of hits and previewing new music from his upcoming album Night. The album concludes the three-part series BlackSummers’Night which the artist began in 2009.
