The R&B veteran took to Instagram over the weekend to give a 15-second teaser of the smooth tune. “In the light of the sun i was dazed i was burned i was lost deep in a storm of a grave had a bed as coffin,” Mawxell wrote with multiple posts.
He continued: “You were only the one that made me fulfilled only the thing that made me reveal my destiny was before us a beach of a forest anything ain’t nothing it’s just… it’s just you just us nobody but.. love on trust on us nobody now can we swim a lake by the ocean we’ll be one like drops in slow motion..” #lakebytheocean #LTBO #maxwell #summers #20thyearanniversaryofmaxwellmusic”
The singer’s fifth studio effort will serve as the second installment in his SUMMERS trilogy.
The news comes a week after Maxwell has been announced as a headliner alongside Mariah Carey and Ciara for the 2016 Essence Music festival, taking place this summer at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
