Grammy winning recording artist Maroon 5 is back with their highly anticipated third studio album, Hands All Over (A&M/Octone), set for release on September 21. Produced by rock studio legend Robert John "Mutt" Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard, The Cars), Hands All Over is a killer hybrid of rock, pop, funk and R&B.
Maroon 5's new single "Misery" is available digitally today and can be streamed through the audio player below.
Maroon 5 began writing the songs that appear on Hands All Over after winding down from a world tour in support of their 2007 studio release It Won't Be Soon Before Long. Several months later, the band received a phone call from Lange, who had heard that the band were beginning to write a new album, and expressed an interest in producing it.
"We didn't even talk to anyone else," Adam Levine, Maroon 5's frontman says. "Mutt is undeniably one of the most successful producers who's ever lived."
The result is Hands All Over, a monumental record chock full of buoyant, unforgettable melodies. Recorded at Lange's Switzerland studio, the members of Maroon 5 locked themselves in the mountains to patiently craft their latest effort.
Tour dates for Maroon 5's 2010 concert tour can be seen on the band's official site.
