Maroon 5's Adam Levine Talks About New Music

In an unlikely twist of events, Maroon 5 is looking to make their upcoming album R&B-focused, which is apparently something frontman Adam Levine has wanted to do since his early 20s.

In a recent radio interview, Levine spoke about the follow-up to 2014's V and revealed that the group's forthcoming LP will be out "soonish," but not before they hone in on the collection's sound.

"Look, since I was 20, I've always wanted to make an R&B record and I will tell you it is starting to lean more and more in that direction," The Voice coach revealed. "So, it's gonna be, I think, our best collection of songs.

"As to when each of them will come out, and how, I don't know yet because we're still just recording them individually and probably gonna release a couple more before we put an album out, but I will say that I've never been more excited about the material that we have at this point."

Levine and company have been working on new music "for about six months" and decided to record with a smaller group of collaborators this time around. If the set is released this year, it'll join Kelly Clarkson's upcoming soul LP, which is said to drop sometime in June and also give you major '90s R&B vibes.
