It was announced earlier this weekend (Fri, August 8) that iHeartRadio and Clear Channel Media will be teaming up to celebrate the release of Maroon 5's fifth studio album, V. On Tuesday, August 26, the band will present their new album in it's entirety on CCM stations nation wide and exclusively for iHeartRadio users (download iHeartRadio on App Store).
Here's a message from the band:
The iHeartRadio Album Release Party with Maroon 5 will celebrate the band's new album, "V," set to be released September 2. The exclusive event will feature an intimate Q&A, discussing the making and meaning of the upcoming album. “V” is 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 in the future. The band’s new single “Maps” was released in June and quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music, setting a record for the highest debut by a group on TOP 40 radio charts in 18 years.
The one-hour special event, featuring Adam Levine and the members of the musical super group, will air live on the east coast on Tuesday, August 26 (8 -9:00 p.m. ET) on The CW, with a delayed playback on the west coast (8-9:00 p.m. PT). An encore of the special will air on Wednesday, September 24 (9 -10:00 p.m. ET). In addition to the television broadcast on The CW, the event will air as a special one-hour broadcast on Clear Channel Contemporary Hit Radio (CHR), Hot-AC and AC stations around the country.
