Maroon 5's Adam Levine doesn't care how you got the new album, just as long as you got it.
In an interview with U.K. gossip and celebrity website Digital Spy, Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine and guitarist James Valentine sat down and talked about their relationship with their fans, touring, and the financial side of the band's work.
"We don't really care if our fans pay for our music. I think our agenda as a band is getting our music to as many people as possible," Adam Levine explains. "I literally don't care how they support us, as long as they do. If you love a band and want to hear their music, obtaining it for free is okay with us. If they're compensating in some way like buying a T-shirt or a ticket is important to us, but as far as the music is concerned."
"We're in the position to do that," adds guitarist James Valentine, who admits he was a "little jealous" of U2's free album stunt. "I do worry about up-and-coming artists, and how they're struggling to make ends meet, to get support and make a living. But for us, I'd love for everyone on the planet to have our music."
