A new song from pop rock band Maroon 5 is in the works, and according to guitarist James Valentine, the new song will be "put out in between this record and our next record, which we just put the finishing touches on."
In an exclusive Huffington Post live interview on Facebook that occurred on Tuesday, August 23, Valentine also confirmed that a new music video for the new single was filmed recently and was directed by film director David Dobkin, who directed and produced Maroon 5's music video for "Sugar", one of the biggest and best-selling singles of 2015.
"We have some more songs in various states of progress that we'll be working on at the end of this year and the beginning of next year", Valentine also states in the HuffPost interview. After being asked about what direction Maroon 5is heading into musically for the next full-length, he said "The last couple of records we have experimented with a lot more electronic, more dance-oriented sounds and we've talked about making a record that was maybe a little more organic, back to the Songs About Jane sort of approach, but we'll have to see."
James Valentine also performed alongside The Roots on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday evening. You can check that out below.
New Maroon 5 single and music video expected to drop this September. The band will record the follow-up to 2014's V come later this year and will finish tracking by mid-2017.
