Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 dropped a new song, “Maps” on Monday June 16.
The lyrics of “Maps” which can be heard below are: “But I wonder where were you/When I was at my worst/Down on my knees/And you said you had my back/So I wonder where were you,” Levine sings on the song’s explosive chorus. “All the worse you took came back to me/So I’m following the map that leads to you/The map that leads to you/ Ain’t nothing I can do.”
Adam Levine spoke to Ryan Seacrest on Monday about Maroon 5’s new song “Maps.” He said, “It’s complicated. It’s also kind of not giving up on things too. People go through a lot of things and get stepped on and step on others and we all make mistakes … It’s kind of more about not giving up on something, even though maybe you should.”
Levine said that “Maps” his favorite song so far with the band, saying, “Here’s the deal, I’m so excited about this album. Mostly because I think that what we always do with every record … it’s kind of everything we’ve ever done as a band musically. It’s kind of all of those things on this album. It’s what we used to sound like, it’s what we sound like now, it’s what we want to sound like tomorrow. It’s all those elements all combined to make one, I think, really great album.”
Levine, when asked whether Gwen Stefani would star on V, admitted to Seacrest, “I wanted it to be a surprise, but she is.”
V will feature production from hit-making machines Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and Shellback.
“Maps” is co-written by Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder and Adam Levine, and it will be the lead single from ‘V’, which is scheduled to hit stores on September 2nd via Interscope Records.
