Album Watch: Maroon 5 To Break Their 3 Year Sabbatical With New 'Thrill Ride'

Thursday, January 21, 2010

To add onto the ongoing grocery list of music for 2010, Maroon 5 are diving into this new year with a brand new album and they have advised us that it's to be the "white-knuckle thrill ride of the year". Well, let me just fasten my seat belt and get ready for a bumpy ride, Bette Davis style. The as-yet-untitled album from Adam Levine and the boys, is to be the follow-up to the group's, 2007 album, It Won't Be Soon Before Long and is said to be to be following in the same vein as the groups 2002 debut, Songs About Jane as it's to be more "organic". While "organic" is a generic descriptive in my book, but thank jeebus that this new effort will pick up on some sounds from their debut. Songs About Jane was surprising little jalapeno of an album, with great songs like "Sunday Morning", "She Will Be Loved" and "Harder To Breathe", that got me into being a fan of this group and of course Adam Levine's voice.

Strangely, the band have released about five teaser trailers describing the "coming soon" aspect of the album...which to me seems pointless because the trailers don't even include any new music, just some chilling classical tones, flashes of images of the band in the studio. Why they chose to make the trailers look like bad and pretentious Oscar presentations, I don't know...but if you're bored or just want to see some pretty photography, the fifth trailer is behind the cut.
