Maroon 5, Title TBD (A&M Octone)
Release Date: April 2010
Maroon 5 headed to Switzerland to record the follow-up to 2007's "It Won't Be Soon Before Long," with producer Mutt Lange. Despite rumors of Lange's quirkiness, keyboardist Jesse Carmichael says the reclusive knob-twirler was "friendly and personable," although he adds that Lange "pushed us really hard." Carmichael adds that the result is a collection of songs that sounds "more organic, almost closer to our first record than the last. You can really hear our personalities." The final track lis has yet to be set, but Carmichael reassures fans that "the songs that will probably be the first singles are my favorite tracks."
