Sweet Tooth: Maxwell – Pretty Wings

R&B Music Lovers everywhere can rejoice!


Maxwell has officially returned to the scene! Well, he first appeared last fall with a welcome-back concert of sorts.  I had the privilege of attending one of the shows. He rolled into Toronto back in October and put on a great show, with Jazmine Sullivan opening. The mood of the concert was really magical actually – with the live band, the excellent back-up singers, and Maxwell’s instrumental voice…plus about 300 screaming Grown-ass women. I’m more of a new-found Maxwell fan myself, but he had a couple songs I always loved, like This Woman’s Work which was featured on the Love & Basketball movie soundtrack (who doesn’t love that movie?).

This is the video for his new single he has released (finally), Pretty Wings. It is the first single off of a Trilogy of albums called Black Summer’s Night that will be released from Maxwell, through Sony BMG, over the next three years. Its a beautiful song. He sang it live at his concert and it was just as spell-binding. I think the chimes give it that majestic vibe to it, and of course, Maxwell’s voice rides the track effortlessly with the melody. Its not a commercially-crafted song, you can tell. The words seem to pop up along the way as the music takes center stage. You’ll see what I mean, peep the video below.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Did ya’ll like that one? I’ve also added a snippet from Maxwell’s concert where he preformed This Woman’s Work. Its not too long, just so you can feel the vibe of the concert. Good stuff!
