According to Adam Levine, Maroon 5 has finished recording the next music disc. New songs were composed during the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic and are in post-production.
On March 4, Music News announced that Maroon 5’s new album -the follow-up to 2017’s Red Pill Blues -is on the way.
Speaking to Apple Music’s Zane Lowe, frontman Adam Levine says, “I can tell you right now that the album’s done. And I can tell you it’s finished, I can tell you it’s been mastered, and I can tell you it’s been delivered, but I can’t tell you when it comes out. But it’s not far off, I’ll just say that.“
The 42-year-old male singer admitted that 2020 was too strange a year to release an album. He struggled with himself to get the motivation to compose new songs. However, once he got on track, work went quickly and smoothly.
This will be Maroon’s new album after nearly four years. The group’s most recent album, ‘Red Pill Blues’ was released in 2017. To pave the way for the next album, Maroon 5 has recently released ‘Beautiful Mistake’ – a single with Megan Thee Stallion – on March 3.Adam says they wrote it during a summer in New York with singer/songwriter/producer Blackbear, and adds that he’s “absolutely obsessed” with the tune.
Adam Levine praised the vocal and rapping skills of ‘Savage’ hit owner when praising her for bringing a more impressive climax to the song. He says she “100% meets all the criteria” for a feature on one of their songs: “Just this really special person, super talented, having a moment.” She’s one of many rappers the band has collaborated with in the past -a list that includes Cardi B, Wiz Khalifa and Kendrick Lamar.
“It’s almost kind of this great symbiosis that occurs between whoever the feature[d artist] is and the band, where it’s at this great moment where we feel like we really have read the right timing,” Adam explains. “And it’s nice, because it opens up our eyes to new things, and theirs as well, so it’s really been great”.
