So you’re listening along to Maroon 5‘s new album titled Red Pill Blues, which arrived today (Nov. 3), and everything is feeling very familiar and Maroon 5-y until you get to the tenth track, “Closure” (the last song on the band’s sixth studio standard album, No. 10 of 15 on the deluxe version).
“Closure” is 11 minutes and 29 seconds long.
For the first four minutes, Adam Levine is singing a falsetto-laced pop song about a couple seeking closure having one more night together, and the turmoil attached to that. But then, the song keeps going strictly instrumental, swapping guitar and organ riffs for seven-plus minutes.
Keyboardist PJ Morton was noticeably excited.

Time will tell how, or if, Maroon 5 will play “Closure” live come the Red Pill Blues Tour in 2018, for which tickets go on sale tomorrow (Nov. 4).
