Maroon 5 is â€˜All Overâ€™ new album, due Sept. 21
Tap AIâ€™s Kris Allen, Owl City, Guster, others for tour
Maroon 5 has announced the details on it’s new album, “Hands All Over,” due Sept. 21.
The pop-rock band recorded the effort with rock vet Robert John ‘Mutt’ Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard, The Cars). “We didn’t even talk to anyone else,” says Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine. “Mutt is undeniably one of the most successful producers who’s ever lived.”
The first single of the album, as-yet-unnamed, will be released to radio June 28, though surely fans will get a gander prior to then.
And with an album comes a tour. The 10-time Grammy Award-winning band will hit the road with a rotating cast of openers: Owl City, Guster, Kris Allen, VV Brown and Ry Cuming. The stint kicks off on July 30, with tickets going up on Friday (May 14).
The 15-track “Hands All Over” is the first album since 2007’s “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long.” Writing for the set started as the tour wound down from that effort, and it was Lange that called up Maroon 5 to work on the set, in Switzerland no less.
