Maroon 5 will appear live exclusively on MTV next Monday to premiere the video for their new single “One More Night.” “MTV First: Maroon 5” kicks off June 25 at 7:53 p.m. ET and will be followed by a 30-minute Q&A with the band on MTV.com that will include an opportunity for fans to ask questions via Twitter.
Adam Levine and the boys will sit down with MTV News’ James Montgomery on the eve of the release of their new album, Overexposed, which features their hit collaboration with Wiz Khalifa, “Payphone.” Before the premiere, fans can get in on the action by submitting video or text questions via MTV.com or Twitter (using @MTVNews/ hashtag #MTVFirst #AskMaroon5). Following the broadcast premiere, the music video for “One More Night” will go into immediate rotation on MTV Hits and mtvU and debut on “AMTV” the following morning.
Overexposed, due out June 26, was recorded in Los Angeles over the past year and features 10 new tracks from the band. It’s the follow-up to 2010’s Hands All Over, which featured the biggest hit of their career so far, “Moves Like Jagger.” Among the producers on the new disc are pop maestros Max Martin, Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder.
Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine recently told MTV News that the filming of the action-packed “Payphone” video required some risk taking on his part. “The video is this crazy thing; it’s about a bank robber, it was actually an idea that I had, and Sam Bayer, who’s a brilliant director, is doing it,” he said from the video’s set.
“Payphone” also pushed the group out of their comfort zone, as it broke their “no guests” approach to making albums, especially in light of the mega-success of the Christina Aguilera-guesting smash “Jagger.” Not wanting to become “that band,” Levine said they were reluctant at first to put another voice on the tune, but their minds changed quickly when they heard Wiz was interested.
“Wiz is an amazing dude, and he’s just the future. He’s already so huge, but he hasn’t really done many big pop records, actually, so just the idea that he’d be interested in doing it was enough to get him involved. It was too good to pass up,” Levine said. “He’s a wonderful guy, he’s so creative and so quick … watching him in the studio, he was just so in it, within 30 minutes he had this incredible verse and he’d already knocked it out. That dude is really prolific and really talented.”
