Maxwell has a surprise for his long adorning fans with the brand new song “We Never Saw It Coming,” which is potentially off a project called The Glass House. The often illusive crooner has been touring steadily since the release of his long-awaited 2016 album blackSUMMERS’night, while letting fans know that the final chapter in his trilogy ‘blacksummers’NIGHT‘ is coming soon.
Today (Jun. 12), the soulful singer/songwriter delivers the somber, expertly-crafted piano ballad, which he only teased on social media a few days ago, without any further info. Collaborating with musician Yomi Abiola, the record is tender and raw with illustrated artwork that depicts a stick figure style house and a family of three. The song finds Max emoting about a heart-wrenching situation that came as a surprise.
“Blindsided by them / Recording as I stare / The cross is burning,” he sings. “No chance to overcome / I feel them parking / I guess my night has come / Is this real? / No restitution / I am here falling in circles / Sorrowfully I fall / We never knew at all / We never saw it coming.”
We will update when we receive more information about the song and the project it is associated with.
