Maroon 5 release their highly anticipated fourth studio album ‘Overexposed’ June 25th on A&M Octone. The poptastic first single, ‘Payphone’ featuring Wiz Khalifa is released June 18th and follows their global hit ‘Moves Like Jagger’ – the 2nd biggest selling UK single last year with 1.2 million sales.

Recorded in Los Angeles over the last year, ‘Overexposed’  is a rich, pop-infused collection featuring  10 new tracks. The album was executive produced by Max Martin with additional tracks produced by Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder. 

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine said of the release, ”’Overexposed’  is definitely one of our most diverse and poppiest albums yet. We had a great time recording it”. 

Guitarist James Valentine added, “’Moves Like Jagger’ was the first time we ever worked with an outside writer, so we decided to try it some more on this record. At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most pop record ever and we weren’t shy about really going for it.”

Maroon 5’s musicianship and frontman Adam Levine’s vocals are as distinct as ever on ‘Overexposed’, continuing to showcase the band’s ability for creating songs that have become part of the pop fabric. Maroon 5 began writing and recording the album during their most recent world tour and the resulting collection is chock-full of undeniable, anthemic melodies. The album includes such stand out tracks as the emphatic single ‘Payphone’ featuring Wiz Khalifa, the irresistible ‘One More Night’ and the rythmic ballad ‘Beautiful Goodbye.’

Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as Best New Artist of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, ‘Songs About Jane’ and their double platinum album, ‘It Won't Be Soon Before Long’, which included hits like ‘Makes Me Wonder’ and ‘If I Never See Your Face Again.’

In September 2010, the band released their third studio album, ‘Hands All Over’, which featured the singles ‘Misery’ and ‘Moves Like Jagger’. 

In addition to his work with Maroon 5, band frontman Adam Levine joined the US hit series The Voice as a coach in 2011. Debuting after Super Bowl XLVI, the second season of The Voice kicked off with a bang, scoring a total of 37.6 million viewers.

Maroon 5 were nominated for Best International Group at the 2012 BRIT Awards.
