Maxwell speaks about his absence and his tour. . .

October 8, 2008

Maxwell recently sat down for an interview with the Associated Press which they taped and posted on YouTube. In it he addresses why he left the music scene for seven years, dispelling any ideas about it being due to mixed reviews or the pressures of putting out a new album. He says,

“A lot of my absence was based on…going out to get life experience, you know? Becoming a guy, becoming a man. I mean, I’m 35 years old now. In your twenties you’re just a sketch of what you think you’re trying to be…”

He also says he didn’t expect such response to his tour, that he didn’t think that audiences were desperate to see him perform again. He didn’t anticipate such interest in his music without a new single and an album that’s still months away from release. If you’re willing to invest a bit in seeing him live you will get to hear three new songs but he’s going to focus on performing his classics because, like many of us, he doesn’t like it when artists only focus on new music during concerts.
