Maroon 5 kicked off their 2016 U.S. headlining tour with a bang, debuting a new stage design, new set list, and a performing a brand new song.
The new song, to which the title is unknown, was debuted live on Saturday night's live concert in San Antonio, the first date on the band's tour. The song is suspected to be the band's brand new upcoming single. During the live performance, frontman Adam Levine is seen at the head of the stage arrow serenading with the song's beautifully-flowing lyrics, "The way I used to love you oh, oh, oh, oh, oh", while James Valentine plays this chill-vibe of a guitar riff, Matt Flynn plays an electronic drum set, and PJ Morton plays keys. The song sounds familiar to that of the works of DJ Snake or Major Lazer's work, and is very similar to RAC's single "Cheap Sunglasses".
Viable titles for this new song could include "Don't Wanna Know", "Used to Love You", or "Love You So", but this has not been confirmed.
In an interview with entertainment outlet Huffington Post on Facebook that occurred on Tuesday, August 23, Valentine confirmed that a new music video for group's 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 5 is 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."
The new single and its music video are expected to drop this fall, prior to the conclusion of Maroon 5's headlining U.S. tour in October.
