After releasing a snippet from their new single ‘payphone’, American popgroup Maroon 5 have now officially presented the full version of the song. ‘Payphone’ is the newest track since the group scored a massive hit globally with ‘Moves Like Jagger’ ft Christina Aguilera. Keeping up with the tradition, the band is joined by rapper Wiz Khalifa.
On a first base listen, the song reminds very much of Adam Levine’s collab with the Gym Class Heroes, ”My Heart’s a Stereo’ which didn’t quite reach the same result as ‘Moves Like Jagger’. The main differences is that ‘Payphone’ follows a more Maroon 5-vibe being much more poppy and less rapping. The lyrics are damn great too, so we think Maroon 5 might be dominating the charts for a second year in a row with this one!
The song is currently already on its way to the top of the charts, after frontman Adam Levine and his band, performed the track during last night’s ‘The Voice’. Adam Levine is one of the coaches on the show. The single is currently only available in the US. It’s not yet known whether the song will be released as single in the rest of the world. Considering the success of ‘Moves Like Jagger’ we wouldn’t be surprised it goes the same way.
‘Payphone’ is also the lead for the band’s new album ‘Overexposed’ which will be released in the UK June 25th and followed by the US one day later. The band took the opportunity to also reveal the full track list for the album. A week ago they presented the artwork for the album.The tracklist looks as follow:
1. ‘One More Night’
2. ‘Payphone (ft. Wiz Khalifa)’
4. ‘Lucky Strike’
5. ‘The Man Who Never Lied’

11. ‘Doin’ Dirt’
12. ‘Beautiful Goodbye’
