Maroon 5 Premieres Latest Single “Animals” Off Upcoming Album V
Album to Debut on September 2nd
Multi-platinum, 3-time GRAMMY-Award winning band Maroon 5 has just released “Animals,” the second single off their highly anticipated fifth studio album V. The band’s album is set to debut on September 2nd. The band’s first single “Maps,” released in June, quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music, setting a record for the highest debut by a group on TOP 40 radio charts in 18 years. The album is a sonic summation of the group’s journey to date – capturing the essence of the earliest Maroon 5 hits through to their most recent successes, as well as providing a picture of its artistic growth in the future.
Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as “Best New Artist” of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, “Songs About Jane” and their double platinum album, “It Won’t be Soon Before Long,” which included hits like “Makes Me Wonder” and “If I Never See your Face Again.” In 2010, the band released their third studio album, “Hands All Over,” which featured the group’s anthemic chart-topping smash single “Moves Like Jagger.” The song has since gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Maroon 5’s most recent album “Overexposed” quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of its singles rising to the top of the charts and setting an all time record for the most #1s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. In conjunction with the album, Maroon 5 wrapped one of the highest grossing tours of 2013 with over 50 million dollars in ticket sales.
