The man who melted the hearts of many ladies and helped conjured many of the youngsters of today is back. R&B singer and songwriter Maxell is set to release ?Black Summers? Night,? his highly anticipated comeback LP, around Valentine?s eve. The set will be the first of three releases under Maxwell?s new deal with Columbia Records. According Maxwell?s Myspace (http://myspace.com/maxwell), the release of the first single was pushed back from the Oct. 11 date. “Due to scheduling obligations with Columbia Records, we are not able to release the new single to MySpace at this time.” A non-working audio file of a song called “Fistfull of Tears” currently appears on the site. In a message posted on Sept. 1, Maxwell wrote, “The last week of letters and comments have done a lot to get a brother off that couch and on to the studio. Who knew after five years that anyone would be around? You proved me wrong and I thank you for it. It feels so right to be back with you.” “Black Summer’s Night” will be Maxwell’s first release since 2001’s “Now,” which has sold 1.7 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan and spawned the hit singles “Lifetime,” and “This Woman’s Work.”
