Monday Playlist: Imagine Dragons, Capital Cities, Lorde & More Kick It Off

Capital Cities, Panic! at the Disco, The 1975, Imagine Dragons, and Gavin DeGraw.
Gavin DeGraw, The 1975, The Neighbourhood, and more are included in our first Monday Playlist post

Hello! Welcome to our new blog segment, #MondayPlaylist! It's where we make a mini-playlist of songs by artists and groups similar to Maroon 5 or under a familiar pop-rock format to help you discover new artists and bands.


This week on our first Monday Playlist post, we have 8 new songs from today's hottest independent artists and/or bands and groups such as the 16 year old sweetheart Lorde and the U.K. representatives The 1975 and The Neighbourhood.

1. Our first artist this week is one of the hottest blue-eyed soul New Yorkers in the industry, Gavin Degraw. The singer has been in the game for a little over a decade developing new music that is categorized anywhere from independent rock to some blues rock and pop, slaying with his singles "I Don't Want to Be" released in 2003 and "In Love with a Girl" which was dropped in 2008, which both were successful top 40 hit singles. This year, the singer is making a comeback to music with his upcoming fifth studio album titled Make a Move, which is set to be released on October 15th. DeGraw, who has toured with bands such as Maroon 5 in 2010 in support of their album Hands All Over, released the single "Best I Ever Had" in June of 2013, which channels a Mumford and Sons vibe with it's irresistible folks rock sound. It peaked at No. 28 on the Adult Contemporary singles chart over the summer. You can watch the music for the single below!



2. Our second song this week is from alternative rock group Imagine Dragons. No it's not radio climactic dubstep hit "Radioactive" or their slender deep rock single "Demon." It's their newest single "Monster", which was released last week. The song sounds familiar to that of the band's independent rock sound, however the lead singer's vocal are a lot stronger on this particular tune. In 2012, the band gained recognition after the release of their debut album Night Visions in September of 2012, peaking in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 albums chart. The band dominated this year with their dubstep-rock-esque "Radioactive" single which managed to peak at No. 3 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Check out the band's "Monster" hit now!




3. Our third song is by these indie poptonic musicians from Las Angeles called Capital Cities. The song? "Kangaroo Court." Yes, as in the famous court nickname from the late 1960's. You may know this band from their sudden breakthrough hit "Safe and Sound", which dominated the radio airwaves over the summer becoming a top 10 hit in over 20 countries. However, this week, the band's newest single from their debut album A Tidal Wave of Mystery titled "Kangaroo Court" is our main target. The song's music video dropped just a couple of weeks ago and has already scored over 2 million views on YouTube and VEVO. The video has a very interesting plot as the song has a very similar sound (if you compare it the trumpeted "Safe and Sound" single). Watch the new music video below!




4. Moving along to our fourth song pick of the week, we chose to share the Englishmen of the pop world, The 1975's new single "The City." The band is fresh off their European tour with The Neighbourhood (which you'll learn about in a bit) and just released their debut album also titled The 1975. However, not very famous in the United States, the band is no stranger to the music world overseas. These guys have secretly been around for over a decade, but haven't released much until 2012 when they dropped numerous EP's and singles such as Facedown, Sex, Music for Cars, and IV. Check out their disco-rock inspired "City" video below!




5. Fifth times' the charm. Our fifth song on this week's Monday playlist are by these L.A. locals The Neighborhood. The band, like The 1975, has been around for nearly a decade however finally broke through with their most recent music. The song we're sharing with you this week is "Sweater Weather." This song has been out for nearly a year, however only gaining recognition in Canada and the United Kingdom. The band dropped their debut studio album simply titled I Love You. in April of 2013. Supported by their lead single "Female Robbery", the band were recognized when they released the indie rock tune "Sweater Weather", a Justin Pilbrow produced track. You can watch the video for the single below!




6. One of the hottest artists on the radio right now with an irresistible voice, Ella O'Connor, better known as Lorde, has our sixth pick this week. Her single "Royals" is currently dominating the radio airwaves right now and peaking in the top 3 on the Hot 100 singles chart. Originally from New Zealand, she is fresh off her September 27th release of her debut album Pure Heroin, which features the song "Team." The song has a grave mix of pop, rock, and electronic dance music with an intense hip hop vibe. You can check it out below!




7. Our next pick is no stranger to rockin' the radio with their alternative wony-rock and baroque pop styles. Panic! at the Disco is our seventh pick this week with their latest single "This is Gospel." After a 2 year break from touring and recording music, the Las Vegas punk rockers returned recently with their Butch Walker induced "Miss Jackson" single and a new album, Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! which drops in October. Walker's indie rock touch makes this band's return more glorifying then ever, specially with their latest "Gospel" hit. Check out the music video for the single below!




8. Our eighth and final pick of the week on our Monday playlist is Plain White T's' newest single "Should've Gone to Bed" from their latest EP album of the same title. Departing from their usual punk rock and hard rock sound, the Chicago rock band channels a more acoustic rock and adult contemporary sound with this song. The song can easily be compared to their "Hey There, Delilah" hit from 2006. Watch the video below!

'Lucky Strike' Debuts on Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles Chart

Adam Levine in the music video for Maroon 5's "Love Somebody" in 2013.
Maroon 5's "Love Somebody" falls out of numerous top 10's this week on Billboard while "Lucky Strike" comes in hot

This week on the Billboard chart, pop rock group Maroon 5's single "Love Somebody" is slowing down and gliding off the charts as it's reign is coming to a close. However, this week, popular demand for the band's plausible upcoming single "Lucky Strike" is moving in on the charts. This week, the Ryan Tedder-produced "Lucky Strike" track debuted at No. 109 this week on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, making it chart at No. 9 on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 singles chart. If "Lucky Strike" were to be the next installment from Maroon 5's 2012 album Overexposed, it would be their fifth single from the album and possibly their next top 40 hit.

On other chart notes, "Lucky Strike" re-entered the Billboard Digital Songs chart this week at No. 45 with over 6,000 digital copies sold over the past week singularly. "Love Somebody" takes a hit on the Billboard Hot 100 falling 21-25. "Love Somebody" also falls 9-12 on the Pop Songs chart, descends 5-6 on the Adult Contemporary Songs chart, slides down 9-11 on the Radio Songs chart, falls to No. 48 on the Digital Songs chart, and crashes 9-24 on the Canadian Hot 100 singles chart.

The band's 2012 No. 2-peaking fourth studio album Overexposed falls this week from Nos. 71-83 on the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart. The album moved back in to the top 60 positions on the Australian Albums chart this week due to excessive digital sales.

Adam Levine Gets Festive with Honda Civic

Maroon 5 on the first leg of the 2013 Honda Civic Tour in August.
Adam Levine talks briefly about the positives of touring in the summer and playing at 'in nature' venues

Maroon 5 has been touring for almost approximately two months on the 12th annual Honda Civic Tour and they are still feeling the heat.

'The Voice' Live Recap: Adam, Cee Lo & Xtina Score Big on Premiere Night

Adam Levine on The Voice in 2013.

The Voice coaches battled it out on the first night of blind auditions on the season 5 premiere

While its direct competitor The X Factor flops around like a fish on a dock, and grand dame American Idol searches for a bucket to bail out the gallons of water left by Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj’s tiresome infighting, NBC’s reality singing competition is gliding through the water like a brainier Ryan Lochte (minus the “JEAH!”-ing and the water-logged docuseries).

There’s the record 15.3 million viewers for its June 2013 finale. There’s Sunday night’s Emmy win as Best Reality-Competition Series. And best of all, there’s tonight’s Season 5 premiere, so laden with genuine talent that Adam Levine found himself declaring “I felt like we were at the end of the season!” — after only the third audition.

Things are so good right now in the House That Willed Cassadee Pope to Victory that even when things go awry — as in the case of solid but unspectacular Texas teen Jake Worthington — rejection is met with an open smile and an “I’m just so happy to be here!”

Sure, sure, I’m probably over-enthusiastic thanks to the fact that one of tonight’s most exciting prospects — 54-year-old Donna Allen — is a happy inhabitant of my iPod with her saucy 1987 R&B hit “Serious." But even without that personal rooting interest, it’d be hard not to catch the same kind of good vibrations from Season 5 that Xtina herself attempted to hijack from three-time champ Blake Shelton in the middle of tonight’s festivities.


The Voice might seem more absolutely-positively-must-see if all the investment and time and voting led to a winner who actually ended up at the top of the charts, but not every party needs to lead to some Higher Purpose. Sometimes you’ve got to just relax, sip your sauv blanc and enjoy what’s unfolding in front of your eyes.

Watch The Voice tomorrow on NBC at 8/7pm CT!

Maroon 5 wants you to "Love Somebody" at the 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival

Opening up with the irresistible reggae chart topping hit single "One More Night", sliding through with a crystal clear performance of "Lucky Strike" and the newest single "Love Somebody" and closing out with a rock-meats-dance, slick finish of "Moves Like Jagger", the Las Angeles band definitely brought their talent to Las Vegas last night at the 2013 iHeartRadio Music Festival where they performed with over twenty different musicians and bands such as Phoenix, Justin Timberlake, Bruno Mars, and more.

Unbenounced to lead singer Adam Levine's some-what sickness this week leading up to the event's of last night (Sat, Sept. 21), his ability to maintain an onstage presence succeeded and still pleased a crowd of over 40,000 people. 

You can watch a clip of Maroon 5's performance of "Love Somebody" below:

'The Voice' Coaches Perform 'I Love Rock and Roll'



Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, Blake Shelton, and Christina Aguilera sing "I Love Rock 'N Roll' on 'The Voice' stage


Judges may swivel in and out of their chairs, but The Voice has kept a steady hold on viewers.

Original coaches Christina Aguilera and CeeLo Green return for the fifth edition of NBC's hit singing competition on Monday (8 p.m. ET/PT), taking back their spinning red chairs from Shakira and Usher, who filled those seats in the spring.

They'll reunite with Adam Levine and Blake Shelton, their fellow judges from the first three seasons. All four will perform together on Monday's premiere.

The reunion was "like starting right where we left off," Aguilera says via e-mail. "The old locker-room humor came back. Maybe Blake's head was a tad larger" -- he's coached the winning singer three times out of four -- "but, in all, they are the same boys I know and love."

The Voice, hosted by Carson Daly, comes off a strong spring season, which averaged 14.4 million viewers and ended American Idol's nine-year run as the No. 1 reality series among the shows' target audience of young adults. (Idol still leads overall, but not by much.) Despite moving to a twice-a-year cycle that risked diluting interest, Voice ratings were down just 4% from spring 2012, a season fueled by a post-Super Bowl premiere.

Leapfrogging Idol among young adults was a "big shift," says executive producer Mark Burnett. "The Voice is now really a step forward. I believe it's young America's show. It's been great fun to have CeeLo and Christina back. Christina looks amazing. She looks like a professional athlete in her fitness," while Levine and Shelton are "like a comedy act."

Green, a mere spectator for Season 4, sees some reasons why The Voice is holding up better than its rivals.

"The blind auditions definitely separate it from the others," he says. "It does boil down to a matter of casting and chemistry. Either of those things can be compatible or combustible. You've seen them be combustible, like on the other two shows." The Voice, he insists, is "new and fresh, and we are all actually not artists in an afterglow. We are current."

Aguilera says "people are drawn to how positive and uplifting it is."

Burnett's not worried that ratings drops for Idol (down 20%) and X Factor, whose Season 3 premiere was down 3 million viewers last week, signal a decline for all singing contests.

"Different show. People follow shows, not genres," he says. "The Voice is a rock-solid franchise that people love."

What's new? Fans will see more of the popular "Steal," which allows one coach to swipe a contestant rejected by another. Social-media correspondent Christina Milian has left to compete on ABC's Dancing With the Stars. And Ed Sheeran, Miguel, Ryan Tedder and Cher will be featured as mentors.

Despite its success, The Voice has yet to produce a breakout star, as Idol did with Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood and others. (In July, Levine said that was "not the goal" of the show, but merely "a fairy tale.") Burnett believes it can produce lasting stars, pointing to the promise of the two most recent winners, Danielle Bradbery and Cassadee Pope, who's had five songs on Billboard's Hot 100.

"I think it stands alone," he says. "It's got great singers and great songs and I think, long term, it's going to (make) a very powerful contribution to the music business."

Green, who commends Idol for making stars, says he would like to help develop a superstar from The Voice, but that it is a complicated process.

"You have to have the right team, the right plan and the right procedure. If all of those things aren't in place, you may have a problem in maximizing opportunity," he says. However, The Voice "is probably the greatest starting point that any aspiring artist could have."

Next spring, Shakira and Usher will again join Levine and Shelton. They "are both amazing artists with so much to say and offer a team. There is only love and support," Aguilera says.

Burnett says he knew early on that coaches would have to leave at times because of their careers. He doesn't rule out adding other music stars to the panel in the future, "but we're certainly very happy with our six.

"Unlike other shows, we don't have unnecessary drama when they're changing chairs," Burnett says. "When you get a chair on The Voice, that's your chair for life, and it's all schedule-dependent. It's a very happy group of people who are all part of a great big team."

There may be a little well-meaning discord, however.

"We've all agreed amongst us," Green says. "We don't care who wins, as long as Blake doesn't win again."

'Love Somebody' Stays Put in the Top 10 on Radio Songs Chart

Adam Levine in 2012.
Maroon 5's "Love Somebody" takes a hit on the Billboard charts this week, still remains in the top 10 on the Radio chart

This week on the charts, the reign of Miley Cyrus, Robin Thicke, Daft Punk, and many more chart dominating artists have continually kept pop rock band Maroon 5 from reaching the No. 1 spots on the charts. On the Hot 100, last week "Love Somebody" moved back into the top 20 on the singles chart however this week the Ryan Tedder produced track fell back out of the top-twenty falling 18-21. After reaching its peak of No. 10 a few weeks back, the single was robbed of it's true mentality and possibly could have made it in to the top 5 on the Hot 100 singles chart. 

On other chart notes, "Love Somebody" descends 5-9 on the Billboard Radio Songs chart, stays put at No. 40 on the Digital Songs chart, falls 4-9 on the Billboard Pop Songs chart, stays hold at No. 5 on the Adult Contemporary Songs chart, and descends 3-5 on the Adult Pop Songs chart. 

Maroon 5's 2012 No. 1 Pop Songs hit single "Daylight" still survives the top 10 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary Songs chart this week falling 8-9 on the tally.

On the U.S. Billboard 200 albums chart, the band's 2012 No. 2-peaking studio album Overexposed falls 54-71 on the tally.

Adam Levine Talks About His Strategy on 'The Voice'

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine talks about what he will be doing different this time around on 'The Voice'

NBC's biggest show of the year is back with it's fifth season and that means the coaches of 'The Voice' have came back with a clean head and new strategies.


Adam Levine always gives incredibly thoughtful critiques and has consistently tried to build diverse and interesting teams each season. But since his big win with Javier Colon in Season 1, he's had less luck, losing to Blake Shelton the past three seasons. HuffPost TV has a fun exclusive behind-the-scenes look (above) at what Adam has to say about his strategy this season, and getting the original gang back together.

"I love the fact that everyone's getting back together -- the original kind of posse that made everything great before," Levine says. "There's only one group of coaches that initially made the show successful, and I love the fact that the purity of that is back again."

Watch what else Adam Levine had to say about this season of 'The Voice' below:

Maroon 5 May Release New Album Early Next Year, Says James Valentine

Maroon 5 promo photo for 2014.
Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine says the band could have a new album "as early as early 2014"

"We're always working on new material", says the guitarist of pop rock group Maroon 5 talking about the next possible record, "but we wont." 

Looks like fans won't have too long to wait for some new Maroon 5 music.  The band's guitarist says their next album could come as early as the beginning of next year.

Speaking to AccessAtlanta.com, Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine says, "We’re always working on new material...We could put out a record tomorrow if we needed to, but we won’t!"  He added, "We’re looking at early 2014 for a new release."

For right now, though, the band is on tour with Kelly Clarkson, promoting their Overexposed album, which has produced four huge smashes: "One More Night," "Payphone," "Love Somebody" and "Daylight."   And James says when the band is on tour, the guys split themselves up into two buses based on a very, very important criteria.

"Those lines were drawn based on whether you play video games or not," reveals James, noting that it's singer Adam Levine and drummer Matt Flynn are the ones who are the gamers.

"[They] play a lot of NBA Live, but I’m not part of that bus," laughs James. "There’s a lot of shouting and name calling. The rest of us read and listen to music."

In addition to NBA Live, Adam is looking forward to another video game.  He recently tweeted, "Already see myself locked in a room playing the new Grand Theft Auto for days on end. Showers optional."  Wonder what his fiancee Behati Prinsloo will have to say about that?

James Valentine Says Maroon 5 is 'Grateful' for Adam Levine's Success

Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine in 2012.
James Valentine said that the band will always support singer Levine's choices and individual decisions in the future

ORIGINAL ARTICLE: http://www.accessatlanta.com/news/entertainment/music/maroon-5-grateful-for-adam-levines-breakout-succes/nZnkq/

Maroon 5’s recent ascension can be traced to Levine’s high-profile gig as a judge on “The Voice,” which tied in to a return to the charts in a big way. Since 2011, the year Levine joined the hit NBC singing competition, the band has scored five consecutive Top 10 hits: “Moves Like Jagger,” “Payphone,” “One More Night,” “Daylight” and “Love Somebody.”

Of course the band — Levine, guitarist James Valentine, bassist Mickey Madden, keyboardist PJ Morton, guitarist Sam Farrar and drummer Matt Flynn — was doing just fine prior to that, with a consistent presence on the charts in the mid-2000s with “This Love,” “Makes Me Wonder,” “She Will Be Loved” and others.
But Valentine readily admits that Levine’s breakout stardom has been an undeniable boost.

The affable ax-man called in from his home in Hollywood, Calif., recently, where he’s lived for 13 years, to talk about the tour.

Q: You’re going to some markets — like here — that you played earlier this year. How will these shows be different?

A: It’s an interesting challenge. We have to keep the set new, but we’ve been around long enough that people are going to want to hear certain songs. If you go see the Eagles, you want to hear “Hotel California.” If you go see Maroon 5, you want to hear “She Will Be Loved” and “Moves Like Jagger.” We change up the arrangements and want the show to flow together like one fluid element and throw in some covers to put it all together. Set-wise, we were inside the arenas on the previous tour, and we experimented with more production and figured out a way to bring some more of that into the amphitheaters.

Q: Did you have anything to do with Kelly Clarkson coming on board the tour?

A: We’ve been close to doing tours with her many times over the years. It kind of makes sense on a lot of levels. She is a singer’s singer. She’s just amazing, so that will be really inspiring, especially for Adam, to have her on right before us. He’s going to have to up his game!

Q: Did you work on new material on the break between tours or just take some time to live?

A: We’re always working on new material. That continues on the road. We have a lot of songs in various stages of completion going. We could put out a record tomorrow if we needed to, but we won’t! Perhaps in the old days, we’d finish a record, tour and go back to the drawing board. I don’t know if we’re more focused, or because of technology, but we can work on ideas on our laptops on the back of the bus. We never really stop. We’re looking at early 2014 for a new release.

Q: Are you tired of being on the road or are you comfortable out there?

A: I do love being on the road. To an extent we’ve been institutionalized — it’s all we’ve really been doing since we were 21, hitting the road. So life makes more sense to me when we’re on the road. I know how to structure my day, then you get the release of playing a show at the end of the night.

Q: You can’t all possibly travel on the same bus?

A: Noooo! The band is split on two buses; those lines were drawn based on whether you play video games or not. They play a lot of “NBA Live,” but I’m not part of that bus. Can you tell from my tone? There’s a lot of shouting and name calling. Adam and Matt are on the video game bus. The rest of us read and listen to music.

Q: Speaking of Adam, how has the rest of the band dealt with his extracurricular activities and subsequent stardom?

A: The only time there was a hesitation was when (“Voice” producers) were deciding whether he would be involved. We couldn’t have predicted what a success the show would be — the whole show was classier than any of us expected. Initially when we heard singing competition show, that could have gone any number of ways. I think they pulled off something unique and created a really great show that is compelling to watch and it isn’t cheap like a lot of reality shows are now. Once the show was out, we were all clearly happy that this was all benefiting us. We felt a little guilty, actually, that we get to reap the benefits of this show, too.

It’s been a huge deal for us. It allowed a lot of people to connect the dots. Pre-“Voice,” I’d hum people songs and they’d go, “Um, yeah,” and now, post-“Voice” Maroon 5 it’s, “Oh, Adam Levine, ‘The Voice!’” Maybe if that wouldn’t have happened, we would have been one of those faceless bands.

'The Voice' Season 5 Preview: Adam, Xtina, Cee Lo & Blake Re-Unite


The original coaches battle in the new preview for NBC's 5th season of 'The Voice'

They're back and everything has changed. Adam Levine has scruff, Cee Lo's got a freaky tattoo on his bald head, Christina is back sassier than ever, and Blake is still using his past three-season wins as a game play. 

Now that the gang is back together for "The Voice" Season 5 (premieres Mon., Sept. 23 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC), we're looking forward to the return of the dramatics, costume choices and over-the-top attitude that Christina and Cee Lo bring to those spinning red chairs.

Adam Levine Confirms New Menswear Clothing Line

The Maroon 5 frontman announced yesterday (September 4) that he’s launching a menswear line for Kmart this fall, according to the Associated Press (via Billboard). 

“Honestly, I think fashion has a lot to do with when you wake up that day; a reflection of where you are, who you are and what you’re going to do,” Levine said in a press conference previewing the line. “I’m not making a pretentious fashion statement, but you have to put something on, and I’m not wearing a fig leaf.”


Levine’s 222 collection will include jeans, henley tee shirts, plaid button-downs, baseball caps and a camouflage cargo jacket with prices ranging from $14.99 to $69.99.

While Levine’s line will be available in 500 Kmart stores starting October 1, fans can get an early jump on single pieces from the collection on Kmart’s Shop Your Way website. Throughout the month, the site is offering flash sales on certain items, along with videos of Levine talking about the making of his fashion line. From the looks of the first clip, he’s really into stitching.

Levine is the latest celebrity to collaborate with Kmart, who have launched fashion lines with Nicki Minaj and Selena Gomez.

Though this is Levine’s first foray into menswear, it’s not his first in the fashion world. Back in June, he released his men’s and women’s fragrance simply called Adam Levine.

Along with designing, Levine is gearing up to reunite with the original cast of judges–Blake Shelton, along with returning judges Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green–on The Voice, premiering September 23 on NBC.

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton 'Reunited' with The Voice Coaches in New Promo

Adam Levine and Blake Shelton reunite with Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green in the new 'Voice' promo ad

 If you were worried about whether or not Adam Levine and Blake Shelton's bromance would suffer on The Voice now that Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green are back and sitting between them (the distance is just too far to bear), good news: Judging by this new promo from NBC, that will definitely not be the case. The bromance is back, and in full force for on The Voice Season 5.

Reason enough to watch this show over The X Factor. There are a lot of other good things about this upcoming season as well: The original judges are back together, which instills a feeling of nostalgia that's actually sort of sweet. No disrespect to Shakira and Usher, but nothing can beat the OG team. Aguilera's sass also seems to be back in full swing, as indicated by her non-hesitation in telling Blake Shelton to shut up when they disagree about a contestant's audition.

Other noteworthy things: Blake and Adam kiss, in a split second scene that will probably launch a thousand fan fictions on the weirdest place on the Internet, archiveofourown.org.

The fifth season of The Voice, featuring Aguilera, Green, Shelton, and Levine, will premiere on NBC on Sept. 23, at 8 PM. Until then, check out the teaser below.
