5DAYSofBLACK equals BSN plus Pretty Wings

June 4, 2009 by

If you haven’t checked back at amazon.com after pre-ordering your copy of MAXWELL – CD/DVD deluxe combination (pre-order) or CD (pre-order), (and I SERIOUSLY hope you have gotten your copy ordered) then you may have missed the following information.

Product Description: Limited Edition CD & DVD Set Special Packaging DVD Includes: 5DAYSofBLACK Inspired by BLACKsummers’night and “Pretty Wings” Music Video

BLACKsummers’night is the heavily anticipated new studio album from groundbreaking modern soul artist Maxwell. BLACKsummers’night is the first full-length Maxwell release since Now, his critically-acclaimed third studio album, debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 in August 2001. This album is the sensuous opening installment of the artist’s monumental BLACKSUMMERS’NIGHT trilogy. Striving for an emotional authenticity and real world sound for the album, the entire album was recorded live in the studio with an a-list ensemble of elegantly sympathetic musicians.

More  P R A I S E for MAXWELL’s upcoming smash hit:

Billboard, May 30,2009
“The Brooklyn-born singer croons a heartbreaking ode to letting go of a relationship. It’s a gorgeous ballad that ushers in a long-overdue welcome return to one of R&B’s most talented and original artists.”

Time Out New York, May 21-27, 2009
If leadoff single’Pretty Wings’, is any indication [of what is to come] we’ll be waiting impatiently for each and every update.”

People, May 25,2009
“The neo-soul star returns with “Pretty Wings”, a lovely ballad that showcases his fluttery falsetto.”
