Release date: June 2012
Overexposed is the fourth studio album by the American pop rock band Maroon 5, released on June 26, 2012. The album was executive produced by Max Martin with additional tracks produced by Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder.
Speaking about the album, guitarist James Valentine revealed to Rolling Stone: "'Moves Like Jagger' was the first time we ever worked with an outside writer, so we decided to try it some more on this record." "At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band. We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most 'pop' record ever and we weren't shy about really going for it."
The lead singer of the band, Adam Levine, also commented about the album: "Overexposed is definitely our most diverse and poppiest album yet. We had a great time recording it. I can't wait for our fans to hear the record, as well as hitting the road to play it live for everyone later this year." In another interview for Rolling Stone, Levine revealed that is their most dance-driven album ever: "It's very much an old-fashioned disco tune. I have a love/hate relationship with it – but mostly I love it."
