Noah "Mailbox" Passovoy has been confirmed as a returning producer and executive mixing engineer for pop rock group Maroon 5's fifth studio album on-progress. On an Instagram photo posted earlier today on Jesse Carmichael's official Insta account, Passovoy was seen sitting at the recording booth mixing up a "new amazing sound" for the band's highly anticipated Overexposed follow-up. The fifth studio effort is expected to be released by this September through Interscope Geffen A&M in the United States.
Noah Passovoy has previously worked with the Los Angeles rockers on their fourth studio album, Overexposed, which dropped almost exactly two years ago on June 26th. "Mailbox" Passovoy shared the same roster of producers for the album with other "big time" names such as Benjamin "Benny Blanco" Levin (Bruno Mars, Gym Class Heroes), Max Martin (Backstreet Boys, Kelly Clarkson), Daniel "Robocop" Omelio (Gavin DeGraw, Owl City), and Shellback (Taylor Swift, Icona Pop).
With Noah Passovoy's favoritism towards adult contemporary, rhythm and blues, soul, and jazz music, we can probably expect a sound as similar as the band's 2002 debut, Songs About Jane; producing songs with blues and rock incorporated easy-listening pop music.
Maroon 5 is expected to go back out on a world wide tour later this year (possibly in support of their fifth studio album) this fall or winter.
