Maroon 5 have returned with their brand new single Maps, and it’s not as bad as Payphone was.
It doesn’t sound “darker” or like the band’s classic album Songs About Jane as the guitarist James Valentine hinted but it’s not exactly awful.
Sonically, the song is similar to OneRepublic‘s recent singles (‘Counting Stars‘) which makes sense as Ryan Tedder co-wrote it with frontman Adam Levine and Max Martin.
Maps will be released in the UK on August 26 with the band’s fifth album V dropping one week later (September 2). Pre-order Maps on iTunes now.
