Video: Maxwell - 'Lake By the Ocean'

  /  05.26.2016

Just after unveiling the cover art and tracklisting for blackSUMMERS’night, Maxwell debuts the passionate video for “Lake By the Ocean.”

The cinematic clip, directed by Philip Andelman, is thought-provoking, opening in a village that’s in dire need of water. It progresses as the protagonist, a beautiful woman from the village, heads out to see Maxwell perform at a café. As she watches his performance and as he sees her in the crowd, passion takes over.

According to Maxwell, the video “depicts a world in need of water and two clandestine lovers who meet with liquid dreams, one being the bare-boned need for clean water, and another, the performer, who wants to be lost in the watery worlds of love and devotion.”

“Lake” is the first single off blackSUMMERS’night, due July 1. Maxwell is also heading out on his 30-date “SUMMERS’ 2016” tour, which will include a stop at ESSENCE Festival. Before all of that, he will perform at the BET Awards, where he’s promised, “it’s gon’ get wet.”
