Adam Levine acknowledges that the title of the new Maroon 5 album, Overexposed, is something of an inside joke - a wink at the Los Angeles-based band's seeming omnipresence, particularly in the wake of the frontman joining the cast of NBC's The Voice and of "Moves Like Jagger," the 2011 smash that topped charts in 18 countries across the globe and became one of the most paid downloaded songs in history.
Indeed, cuts like the Electro-Reggae "One More Night" and lead single "Payphone," with a guest verse by rapper Wiz Khalifa, demonstrate how difficult it is to categorize Maroon 5; the same goes for the "funked-up" ballad "Beautiful Goodbye" and "Doin' Dirt, a propulsive Disco-Rock jam with harmonies that reveal the influence of Hall & Oates.
Following the success Overexposed, Maroon 5 is setting out on their 2013 North American Tour with a stop at Mohegan Sun Arena on February 22nd at 8pm.
