Maxwell last week unveiled what he's calling a partial tracklist for his upcoming Summers' album. Summers' comes as the long awaited second part of his promised trilogy of albums surrounding the theme of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Today we got a little preview of what's to come via the above 40 second snippet of a song called "GODS." Maxwell, however, did make it a point to note that this is not an official single. But! A final full version of the track is coming very soon, our fine friend promises.
Update: The Facebook video seems to have been pulled. But now we have an extended snippet in the form of a "rough mix" for you below!
2. Beware Of Smiles
4. Of All Kind
6. Lake By The Ocean
MED recently dropped a video for "Candleight" off his Bang Ya Head 3 mixtape as he now prepares to soon release the fourth installment of his mixtape series. MED's flow glides on the melodic beat giving us an ideal laid back vibe to groove to. And ain't nothing like a tingling Georgia Anne Muldrow feature to get the mood outer planetary and what not.
The electro stew of sound that is "Kodiak" has a merry, upbeat quality to it and adds intensity with its clanging symbols, laser beam interludes, and guitar breaks.
Above, get a taste for the guys in action on tour. Watch until the end and you'll also catch all the winter 2013 tour dates!
The group's upcoming album, Build, will be out on February 19.
You'll be hard pressed to find many modern male soul vocalists out there doing anything near the ranks of Allen Stone. Love this man! He recently performed "Sleep" live on the Ellen Degeneres show for which you can find the video above. You can't help but just want to wiggle it out and lose yourself in such luxurious soul.
