Multi-Grammy Award-winning band Maroon 5, according to Jimmy Fallon, brought their brand new single, "Cold", to the studio at The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday evening (March 14), and it was electrifying.

Frontman Adam Levine also appeared on the show to sit down and talk with Jimmy Fallon about The Voice, his constant on-screen beef with fellow coach Blake Shelton, and gave some exciting news about Maroon 5's next record and touring schedule. "I've been on tour for my whole entire life", Levine jokes. Fallon then asks the singer if the new Maroon 5 record is "being mixed or mastered", and Levine responds: "I wish that was where we were. It's almost there. We're actually still recording, but we'll be done really soon and then a tour next year, mid-to-late next year. Next fall."



The highly anticipated sixth full-length LP from Maroon 5 sounds like it will be out either late this year, or in early 2018. The band's two recent radio singles, "Don't Wanna Know" and "Cold", are stand-alone singles and have not been confirmed to be on the next album. The album will follow-up Maroon 5's 2014 studio effort, V, which was reissued the following year with the support of their single "This Summer's Gonna Hurt". The L.A.-bred group just concluded their world tour last week in New York and will be playing multiple festivals this year including New Orleans Jazz Festival and BottleRock Napa Valley Music Fest.

GUMBO will follow-up the Maroon 5 keyboardist's 2013 album New Orleans

Maroon 5 keyboardist, singer, songwriter, and Morton Recordings owner PJ Morton is finally releasing a new solo album this spring, titled GUMBO. The album is set to be released on April 21st, 2017 through his label.

In an interview with music, gossip, and culture website Saint Heron, Morton spoke about his new single, "Claustrophobic", and the details about his new record GUMBO. "Of course, it's a New Orleans reference. It’s something that represents the city," said Morton after being asked about the album's title. "Prior to this, all of my music has been about love and relationships. I LOVE love, but this time around I address the climate of the world right now. I discuss how divided America is, the racial tension, and then there is “Claustrophobic,” which touches on creative freedom. I also talk about my religion on the album. I thought it was a pot of gumbo because I was mixing a bunch of things together."

GUMBO is set to be released Friday, April 21st through Morton Recordings.

You can stream and listen to PJ Morton's new single "Claustrophobic", featuring Pell, now available on Apple Music!

Via Rolling Stone.
Maroon 5 win their fourth Gaon Chart Music Award for their single "Don't Wanna Know"

If you have not heard of the South Korean based music awards show Gaon Chart Music Awards, it's okay, we haven't either. The Gaon Chart Music Awards, also known as the K-Pop Music Awards, is important because it is equivalent to the Billboard Music Awards here in the United States. The show awards artists, locally or internationally renown, by their success on the Gaon Music Charts, a chart based in South Korea.



Maroon 5 just recently won the award for International Song Of the Year, for their 2016 hit single "Don't Wanna Know", featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar. This is the Los Angeles-based band's fourth non-consecutive win at the award show. They have won the same category three other times. The band won for "Moves Like Jagger", featuring Christina Aguilera, in 2011, "Payphone", featuring Wiz Khalifa, in 2012, and for "Maps" in 2014. Two other international artists have won this category before on the Gaon Chart Music Awards, being Adele ("Hello in 2015) and DJ Bad Gollum ("The Bad Touch" in 2013).

Congratulations to Maroon 5 on their big win overseas in South Korea!

The band recently released their new single, "Cold", featuring Future, which is now available to stream and purchase everywhere. Maroon 5 is also currently on tour in North America in support for their latest album V, which you can see full dates and ticket information here.

Maroon 5's 'Cold' makes debut on Billboard charts


Maroon 5's current hit "Cold" has now impacted the Billboard charts 

Maroon 5's latest hit single "Cold", featuring Atlanta rapper Future, has stormed the Billboard charts in the U.S. for the first time this week since its massive release earlier this month.

"Cold", produced by John Ryan, and Jacob Kasher Hindlin, and co-written between Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Semi Precious Weapons lead singer Justin Tranter, made its way onto the Billboard Hot 100 this week, debuting at No. 42. "Cold" also debuted at No. 23 on both the Adult Top 40 Songs chart and Mainstream Top 40 Songs charts.



Internationally, "Cold" debuted at No. 67 on the Canadian Hot 100, No. 36 in Scotland, and at No. 109 in France.

"Cold" is a follow-up the Maroon 5 single "Don't Wanna Know", featuring Kendrick Lamar, which was released last fall in October, and has performed really well on the charts. It has peaked in the top-ten in approximately 23 countries and has peaked at No. 1 in six.

In a recent interview on the famous Ellen Degeneres Show, Adam Levine sat down with Ellen to talk about Maroon 5's forthcoming studio album, the follow-up to the band's fifth album, V, which dropped in 2014. "[The album is coming out] like in a few months," semi-jokingly said Levine. "I don't know exactly when so I'm going to be as vague as possible." No set date or album title have been confirmed either.

Despite performing moderately on the Billboard charts this week, "Cold" has been climbing up the trending charts online since its music video debuted last week. The video for the song has since skyrocketed to 15 million views on Vevo and is on its way to becoming the most-viewed music video of 2017, thus far.

You can purchase "Cold" on iTunes StoreGoogle Play, and Amazon. Watch the music video for "Cold" now available on Vevo.
