Maroon 5 Announce Fifth Studio Album for Fall
Nearly two years ago, Maroon 5 scored another hit with Overexposed, which the band promoted with a tour that ended in 2014.
On Monday, the group announced a follow up. Titled V, the release will be their fifth studio album and is scheduled to come out on September 2 on Interscope.
Many of the same producers who contributed to Overexposed are returning for V. This includes work from Max Martin, Benny Blanco, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, and Shellback. As well, according to statements, keyboardist Jesse Carmichael, who went on hiatus for Overexposed, returns for V.
As of now, Maroon 5 has not revealed a lead-in single or a tour. However, dates are expected to be announced shortly.
Overexposed came out in 2012, debuting at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and the U.K. Albums chart. Although some critics mentioned that Maroon 5 sounded too mainstream, the release turned out to be one of their most successful, with four singles released, including “Payphone” and Billboard Hot 100 chart topper “One More Night.”
While most of the material for Overexposed was new, band members mentioned they decided to use some cuts from the Hands All Over Sessions.
If you’re a Maroon 5 fan, what would you like to see them do on this release? Do you think, especially with the same group of producers returning, that it will essentially be Overexposed, Part II?
