Maxwell stopped by Dj Skees New Music show on KIIS FM in Los Angeles, after an 8 year break from his last album release. Maxwell told Skee about his new trilogy of albums starting out with ‘Black’, what new music he listens to, and why he cut his hair. “To me there’s nothing cornier than using a style or a look as a crutch,” Maxwell said of the cropped locks. “It just seemed kind of weak to me.

Despite receiving critical praise and being put in a position as one of the leaders of the neo-soul movement after his first three albums, Maxwell says he “needed to experience some real things if I was going to continue to have something to say artistically.” So the 35-year-old stepped out of the spotlight for six years. “But by the end of my last tour, I knew I needed to change,” Maxwell tells Bob Mehr of Memphis Commercial Appeal. “I knew a certain phase of my career was about to close, and for me to stick around and hold on to the security blanket of my image or the sound that I had wasn’t right. I needed to take risks and pull away from the comfort zone.” Read more.
