2. Maroon 5 will perform "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" live on primetime T.V.
Maroon 5 announced yesterday that they aren't just simply releasing the single to digital retailers and to radio airplay, but they are also debuting the song live on national television on Tuesday, May 19th on NBC's hit reality music competition show The Voice. It will mark the second time this season that Maroon 5 would perform on the show live following their performance of "Sugar" a few weeks back. You can watch their performance of "Sugar" below.
3. There may be a possible V reissue pack coming.

4. "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" will have a music video.
News of the music video for "This Summer's Gonna Hurt" went up online before fans even knew about the single. In late April, P.J. Morton (Maroon 5's keyboardist) among others posted photos on social-media photo-sharing app Instagram of the band shooting a music video in a desert setting in southern California. Fans were quick to assume that the MV was for "Leaving California", a cut from Maroon 5's new album V. Rumors of that were shut down, however, immediately after the announcement of "This Summer's Gonna Hurt."
5. "This Summer..." may be released early Friday morning.
