Looks like ‘Fire We Make’ duo Alicia Keys and Maxwell are looking to make more hot music if his recent announcement is anything to go by.
Indeed, while the ‘This Woman’s Work’ wailer is hard at work on ‘blackSUMMERSnight’ – the second of his critically acclaimed trilogy, recent interviews with Essence and Billboard have lent clues about what else the crooner is hard at work on.
Reportedly teaming with Alicia Keys for a “Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrell”-styled duet EP, peek after the jump to get the details on both of the crooner’s upcoming ventures and when you can get your hands on them:
MAXWELL on ‘SUMMERS’ album.
“The album’s pretty much about the last day of summer, so I felt like it was a good idea to release it at the end of the summer,” says Maxwell.
MAXWELL on collaboration LP with Alicia Keys:
We’re definitely working on an EP that’s sort of Marvin Gaye/Tammi Terrrell. We got a thing musically….She’s someone that I trust. I’m like that, by the way. Most of the people you see me working for me are actually with me. And I’m proud to say that I’ve known them for 20 years almost. I’ve written songs with, produced songs with them a lot of times. I don’t deviate form my comfort zone. I feel like when God brings people to you it’s good to keep ‘em around. Not to say I haven’t cut a few fools off [laughs], but for the essential I keep it close.
