It’s been nearly four years since we’ve heard new music from R&B star Maxwell, but the wait is officially coming to an end!

The 2013 ESSENCE Festival performer released a one-minute clip of his new song “Gods” via SoundCloud yesterday. It’s lifted from his forthcoming album Summers’, the second installment of a three-part album series from the velvety-voiced singer. Since its release, fans have been tweeting with joy and excitment. “Folks are about to have babies to this new album [by] Maxwell, because ‘GODs’ is pretty serious,” tweeted Steve & Steven. “Man that sounds nice! Can’t wait for what’s in store,” shared iTreyRay.

What do you think of the song thus far? Will you catch him live in New Orleans at the 2013 ESSENCE Festival this fourth of July?
