New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Soul star Maxwell is releasing a rare set of EPs from his enduring and influential 1996 debut album Urban Hang Suite, comprising multiple versions of the hits that launched his career and re-shaped R&B music in the 1990's. Beginning March 29th, the five long out of print EPs, will be released every Friday digitally for the first time. On the same day, the singer, songwriter and producer will release a five-song remix EP (+ video and instrumental version) of his latest single "Shame" — his 14th R&B top 10 hit. Maxwell has also confirmed summer performance plans, which include a series of headlining and festival dates.

The five Urban Hang Suite EPs (released via Sony Music's Certified Classics - Legacy Recordings' division for the celebration of Sony Music's Hip-Hop and R&B catalog) comprise a combination of remixes, alternate versions, MTV Unplugged Live tracks, B-sides, dubs, radio edits, and instrumentals and will launch with the star's first single

"…Til the Cops Come Knockin," followed by other hits that defined his early career — "Sumthin' Sumthin,'" "Whenever Wherever Whatever" and "Suitelady (The Proposal Jam)."

Maxwell will also release the SHAME 508 remix EP (via Columbia Records) on March 29 to coincide with his other new material. The EP will have five remixes (Cyril Hahn, Cassady, Wes1), along with a video and an instrumental version.
