Perhaps the most exciting part of the announcement is the issuance of the first single from the upcoming project. "Off," a collaboration with longtime producer Hot David, is a sultry, moody ballad that should connect with Maxwell's longtime fans. He sounds great, and the number is more accessible than the singles from his prior album. 

Fans will also note that a tour is planned around the album release that will cross the U.S. The dates and locations are shown below, and will also feature Anthony Hamilton and Joe.

We're excited to hear the entire project, and will have "Off" on repeat here. Check it out below and tell us what you think.
