Maxwell Plotting Comeback
Lauryn Hill did it. "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" -- six times platinum -- came out 11 years ago. Sade did it. It's been nine years since she released "Lovers Rock." D'Angelo did it. It's been the same amount of time since he put out his platinum-selling set "Voodoo" (both he and Sade will release albums this fall).
Now, after being on hiatus since 2002, Maxwell is stepping back on the public stage. On Tuesday (July 7), the 36-year-old Brooklyn native will release his long-awaited, often-delayed fourth studio album, "BLACKsummer'snight," the first installment of a trilogy, through Columbia Records.
