“V” – New Album’s Bio

On September 2, 2014, Interscope Records will release V – the new album by Maroon 5. True to its title, V represents the fifth full-length studio effort from the Grammy Award winning superstar band. Considering that career benchmark, Maroon 5’s latest provides a sonic summation of the group’s journey to date – capturing the essence of the earliest M5 hits through to their most recent successes, as well as providing a picture of its artistic growth into the future.

Bringing it all back home, V features the return of M5’s original keyboardist Jesse Carmichael to the fold, rejoining frontman Adam Levine, guitarist James Valentine, bassist Mickey Madden, drummer/percussionist Matt Flynn, and keyboardist PJ Morton after a two-year hiatus. V also builds on the momentum of the most successful period in M5’s history, re-teaming the band with previous collaborators and featuring some unexpected new friends, too.

Maroon 5 has always proven popular since the release of the band’s debut album – 2002’s five-times-platinum Songs About Jane, featuring classic M5 hits like “This Love” and “She Will Be Loved” that forged its pioneering template of rock, pop and R&B. In 2011, Maroon 5 built on the momentum of two unlikely forces colliding: the massive exposure brought by Levine’s status as a host of the smash TV series The Voice, and the release of “Moves Like Jagger,” which returned M5 to the top 10 after a four-year break. An international #1 single, “Moves Like Jagger” became a pop-culture phenomenon – becoming not just Maroon 5’s biggest hit, but one of the best-selling singles of all time, selling over 14 million copies. That triumph was followed up with yet another win, Maroon 5’s 2012 album Overexposed, which only made the group bigger. Overexposed unleashed a foursome of top 10 hit singles – “Payphone,” “Daylight,” “Love Somebody,” and “One More Night” – the latter of which spent nine weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, setting a record for the band.

For V, Maroon 5 has created a set of irresistible pop juggernauts raising the band’s sound to the next level. V’s lead-off single “Maps” finds Maroon 5 taking the reggae-influenced vibes the group honed on Overexposed hits like “One More Night” to new heights, via an infectious pop-rock meditation on longing and obsession (“I was there for you in your darkest times/I was there for you in your darkest nights”), where Levine’s soulful ,elastic falsetto recalls none other than one of his biggest inspirations, Sting and The Police. It also reteams the songwriting collaboration between Levine and Ryan Tedder (Adele, Beyoncé, One Direction), Benny Blanco (Katy Perry, Britney Spears) and Ammar Malik (Gym Class Heroes, Lady Antebellum, “Moves Like Jagger”).

That reggae influence also shows up on the “whoa-oh-ohs” of “Animals”: a lustful anthem driven by a booming, Soul II Soul-style hip-hop beat, “Animals”’ hooky chorus (“Baby, I’m preying on you tonight/Hunt you down, eat you alive/Just like animals”) evokes the otherworldly melodies of Miike Snow. As such, V also finds Maroon 5 returning to the dancefloor with standout track “Feelings,” whose disco-meets-Michael Jackson groove, 4/4 EDM thump, and Daft Punk-style vocoders suggests “Moves Like Jagger” on robot steroids. Meanwhile, it’s become a M5 tradition to feature a collaboration with an unexpected guest artist, with major talents like Wiz Khalifa (“Payphone”), Lady Antebellum (“Out of Goodbyes”), Rihanna (“If I Never See Your Face Again”) and Christina Aguilera (“Moves Like Jagger”) having done the honors on hits past. On that level, V does not disappoint, as “My Heart Is Open” features Levine performing a duet with none other than Gwen Stefani.

That’s not the only surprise on V, however. “My Heart Is Open” reveals Maroon 5 at its most emotionally raw and direct: it features Levine’s passionate romantic testifying (“I don’t need another lover/I want you”) over a spare, heart-tugging piano ballad, building to a soaring chorus with subtle orchestration. “Leaving California,” meanwhile, hearkens back to the classic M5 sound – the bittersweet yet catchy confessionals of heartbreak from Songs About Jane that propelled the band to fame in the first place. As such, V brings Maroon 5 full circle, moving strength to strength from the band’s vital beginnings to its ongoing rise – taking the listener down nostalgic and new paths alike to create the latest undeniable chapter in the M5 odyssey.

Here is the tracklist:

1. Maps​​​​​​

2. Animals​

3. It Was Always You

Adam’s Best Man – The Voice 2014

Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo Are Married!

It’s official! Adam Levine is off the market.

E! News has exclusively confirmed that the Maroon 5 frontman married his ladylove Behati Prinsloo in a beautiful wedding ceremony at Flora Farms in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, tonight. The two lovebirds swapped vows in front of their nearest and dearest, who were taken to the location by a shuttle from their hotel. Levine looked dapper in a fitted tux while his blushing bride stunned in a Marchesa gown.

Prinsloo’s bridesmaids include fellow model Coco Rocha, and E! News learns that the couple have asked their guests to make a donation to the Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles instead of getting the newlyweds a gift. After celebrating their union, the pair will honeymoon in South Africa.

Wedding festivities began Friday night, when 100 guests were shuttled from their hotel to El Dorado for a party on the beach that was set up in front of Mike Meldman’s home, a source told E! News exclusively.

Casually dressed attendees mingled at a large bar and relaxed with margaritas and wine. There was also lounge furniture situated on the beach, along with small tee pees for additional seating. Tables were adorned with red flowers, and once it got dark, candles and white twinkle lights were glowing.

Once the “informal and lovely” bash began, guests including Jason Segal, Jonah Hill and Erin Heatherston grabbed some grub from a taco stand, a source told E! News. No one gave speeches, but we’re told the atmosphere was “fantastic.”

The nuptials are especially special for the rocker, who once exclaimed that he’d never get married (yep, he said that). “Famous last words: ‘I’ll never get married,’” he told Jay Leno in October. “You know, I still don’t think you have to get married, unless you meet someone that makes you want to marry them. And then you marry them and it’s wonderful.”

Levine began dating the 25-year-old model about two years ago, shortly after his split from fellow model and longtime girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna. However, their romance experienced a bump on the road, and the pair split for several months before deciding to reconcile (for good).

The duo were first spotted together in June 2012, stealing a smooch while vacationing in Hawaii. They were headed to Kauai for a friend’s wedding and were seen holding hands and chatting up pals together during pre-ceremony festivities.

Then, nearly a year ago, Levine decided to pop the question—and the 35-year-old hunk revealed that he was the perfect gentleman when it came to asking for Prinsloo’s hand in marriage.

“I did ask his permission,” Levine told Ryan Seacrest when asked if he consulted his ladylove’s father before he proposed. “I don’t want to talk about it, you know how I am, but yes, of course I did. I had to. And it was extremely nerve-wracking.”

Worth it. Congratulations Adam and Behati!

Adam Taps Stevie Nicks as Mentor for “The Voice”

On the set of The Voice 7

Back in 2011, when it was still unclear just how massive The Voice would become, Stevie Nicks performed on the show’s Season 1 finale with Team Adam‘s Javier Colon. And now, six seasons later, Stevie is returning to the show as an adviser to Adam Levine.

The mutual appreciation between Stevie and Adam goes way back. The two dueted on “Leather and Lace” at Maroon 5′s 2011 Hollywood Bowl show, and this year, Adam paid tribute to Stevie when she was the guest of honor at the BMI Pop Awards, singing that song with Sheryl Crow.

And there is mutual appreciation between Stevie and The Voice in general. Back at the Season 1 Voice finale, the Fleetwood Mac legend told Yahoo Music’s Reality Rocks that if the show had existed back when she and Lindsey Buckingham were first starting out, they would have auditioned.

“If something like this had come up, would we have tried out? I would have had to drag [Lindsey] by the hair, but yes, absolutely,” she said. Stevie also said she believes shows like The Voice are good for the record industry, “because it is so hard to break into music. The music business is not in good shape right now.”

There’s going to be plenty of music-business power on this forthcoming seventh season of The Voice, which kicks off Sept. 22 (perhaps not coincidentally, just eight days before Fleetwood Mac’s big reunion tour). Also joining the series — as full-time coaches — are Gwen Stefani and Pharrell Williams.
