Maxwell made a seven-year hiatus in April to share the track “Lake By the Ocean” and announce that his new album, blackSUMMERS’night, is dropping on July 1. Yesterday, the R&B unveiled the music video for the track. Directed by Phil Andelman, it’s a cinematic visual spotlighting a Dominican Republican woman working to bring clean water to a village.
