Maxwell has premiered the steamy new music video for his fast-rising single "Lake By The Ocean," filled with classic sensuality and gorgeous film work.

The story is introduced with a beautiful young woman, weary from carrying jugs of water in the dusty summer heat. She escapes in the evening to watch Maxwell perform in an intimate café, followed by a passionate midnight rendezvous with him. Maxwell says 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."
Andelman continues, "this was such a special experience, Maxwell's vision for this piece really allowed us to push ourselves and create something personal. Shooting in small villages and pristine coastlines immersed us into the heart of the song. I am so grateful to have been part of this journey."
This is the first video for Maxwell's new album 'blackSUMMERS'night,' (out July 1st , Columbia) his first album in seven years and the second chapter of a musical trilogy that began with 2009's "BLACKsummers'night." Starting June 18th, he will embark on his SUMMERS' 2016 30-date tour, including a headlining slot at Essence Festival.
