(Radio.com) Neo-soul pioneer Maxwell has returned with "Lake by the Ocean," his first single in seven years. The song will appear on his upcoming album BlackSUMMERS'night, which is scheduled for release July 1.

The new single comes less than a week after Maxwell celebrated the 20th anniversary of his debut album, Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite. 'Lake By the Ocean" is a stirring love song that includes the line, 'Can we swim a lake by the ocean?/ We'll be one like drops in slow motion."

"Basically, the song represents falling in love after a very tough trial period in life and finding contentment in the smallest things next to the biggest things," the singer said in a live Q&A on his Facebook. "'Being content in a lake when you have an entire ocean near you is the epitome of true happiness." Read more here.
