PHOTOS: FIRST LOOK — Maxwell’s “Fistful Of Tears” Video

Maxwell’s “Fistful Of Tears”, a standout track from his Grammy-winning BLACKsummers’night album, touches on a complex question: how to move on with a romance that has hit the skids. But for the song’s luscious new video, Maxwell and director Phil Andelman focus on something simple — the power of Maxwell’s live performance. The video captures the singer and his band performing in a polished old-school television studio that evokes The Ed Sullivan Show and the grandeur of that era’s soul greats. As you’ll see in our exclusive collection of images from the clip, which premieres on Vevo this Wednesday, Maxwell looks just as stylish in black-and-white. (For your viewing pleasure: more images from the video over at Concrete Loop and Bossip). If you’ve somehow missed the glorious “Fistful Of Tears” before, listen here.)
