Maroon 5 Talk With CNN On The Set Of ‘Misery’ Video

Go behind the scenes with Maroon 5 on the set of their ‘Misery’ video in downtown Los Angeles. Singer Adam Levine and bassist Mickey Madden talked with CNN’s Denise Quan about shooting the action packed video and how recording with Mutt Lange influenced the sound of their third studio album. Asked if the band received any backlash from fans who thought what they’ve heard of the new album ‘Hands All Over’ didn’t sound like the Maroon 5 they’re familiar with, Levine said, “Yes and no. I don’t think that we really focused on that kind of thing. It’s a free country. If you don’t like our music, it’s fine. Or if you’re disappointed with what we give you, that’s fine, too. We tend to focus on people that like it. That’s kind of more fun.” Watch the segment via Turner.com below the cut. (more…)

Adam Levine Gets Emotional Watching ‘Toy Story 3’

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine visited SIRIUS XM Hits 1’s “Morning Mash Up” crew, where he explained how he got weepy watching ‘Toy Story 3’. “I didn’t want to full-on cry, but I probably would have if I’d been home,” Levine confessed. “It was just the most well made emotional, beautiful movie I’d ever seen. People think that it’s just about kids stuff and it’s for children that it can’t have depth and it can’t be a soulful thing and it can’t be amazing. It is seriously the best movie I’ve seen in a long time.” Watch the remarks via YouTube below.

Maroon 5 Avoid Distraction Recording ‘Hands All Over’ In Switzerland

Maroon 5

Adam Levine spoke with MTV News about the band teaming up with Mutt Lange in Switzerland to record Maroon 5’s new album ‘Hands All Over’. The singer said the beautiful backdrop provided by Mutt’s studio in Lake Geneva was an escape the pop rock group needed.

“Our biggest weakness is laziness and lack of focus, which mostly comes from me, because I am like that,” Levine confessed on the set of Maroon 5’s ‘Misery’ video. “But the coolest thing about being [in] Switzerland, we weren’t distracted at all. There was nothing to be distracted by, except scenery, which was very beautiful. But once you kind of took all that in, you were left with your own thoughts.”
