July will open up with blackSUMMERS’nightMaxwell’s fifth studio album. The fast-approaching LP is his first in seven years, so what’s another week? Well, if you’re still too anxious, feast on “Gods,” a fresh track that was teased way back in 2013 via an unfinished snippet, and is now finally available to stream in full.
