Maxwell Is Back With New Music Video "Lake By The Ocean"
|Maxwell Is Back With New Music Video "Lake By The Ocean"|
The cinematic clip, directed by Philip Andelman, is thought-provoking, opening in a village that’s in dire need of water. It progresses as the protagonist, a beautiful woman from the village, heads out to see Maxwell perform at a café. As she watches his performance and as he sees her in the crowd, passion takes over.
Director Phillip Andelman adds, “this was such a special experience, Maxwell’s vision for this piece really allowed us to push ourselves and create something personal.
Shooting in small villages and pristine coastlines immersed us into the heart of the song. I am so grateful to have been part of this journey.”
This is the first visual from Maxwell’s much-anticipated new album blackSUMMERS’night, due out July 1, his first album in seven years and the second chapter of his musical trilogy that began with 2009’s BLACKsummers’night. Starting June 18, he will embark on his SUMMERS’ Tour, including a headlining slot at the Essence Festival on July 1.
