  • Maroon 5 Releases New Album “JORDI”: Streaming

  • American pop-rock band Maroon 5 released their seventh studio album “JORDI” on June 11, 2021 along with a new music video for “Lost”. It is their first album in four years.
    The album is titled after a nickname of the band's late manager Jordan Feldstein, who died in 2017.
    “The loss is tragic in ways I'm still learning how to cope with. All I can do is keep him with me and honor him in the best way I know how,” frontman Adam Levine said. “I'm proud to have etched his name into the history of this band that he helped build from the ground up … every step of the way. We love you Jordi.”
    The album comprises of 12-track (deluxe version 14-track), featuring guest appearances from Megan Thee Stallion, blackbear, Stevie Nicks, Bantu, H.E.R., Juice Wrld, Nipsey Hussl, YG, Anuel AA, Tainy and Jason Derulo.
    “At this point, we've made it,” Adam Levine told Apple Music. “We're not trying to do anything to make it any further, not trying to just make a buck. We're trying to do things to challenge ourselves, to move people in the right ways. We're trying to make great music that stands the test of time.”

    Adam Levine explained track-by-track for the album via Apple Music.

    “Beautiful Mistakes”
    “We were spending summertime in New York, and the wonderful and talented blackbear wanted to write a song with us. The hook he wrote—this great chorus hook, and, I mean, the whole song is a hook—I feel like that's how you know you've got a good one, when the whole song's a hook. When we were recording, I played it for Travis Barker and I was like, 'It kind of reminds me of an old Blink record.' But I'm going to call it Blink-hop, because it's kind of got a Blink feel, and that kind of angstiness, but it also has a hip-hop thing going on. It's like this weird hybrid of different styles from my past.”

    “'Lost' is actually one of my favorites we've ever done. I think it just captures everything the band stands for, all in one song. Whether you liked us back then, whether you like us now, whether you'll like us later, I think this is kind of a classic sound that we've always had. And the song, the lyrics actually were a great process and I worked a lot. They took a while, and that's, to me, the most important contribution I think that I made to any record. Just sitting with them and really trying to make sure everybody understood what I was saying and not trying to shroud it too much in any metaphor.”

    “Stevie's one of the all-time greatest. And I've always had a wonderful friendship with her. I love her so deeply. J Kash [songwriter Jacob Kasher] and I were talking and he's like, 'What do you think about Stevie Nicks for this?' I didn't even think twice, really, because the song definitely makes sense for her, but I had not thought of that angle. It always winds up being the best decision when it's the right one. And with her, it's like it was made for her.”

    “Convince Me Otherwise”
    “Getting it right is all about feeling it out and really thinking of all the dream people you could imagine for this stuff. Like the way that it worked on 'Convince Me Otherwise': H.E.R. was perfect. Gabi [Wilson] is the greatest—she's one of my favorite new artists. Every feature I listened to—even with Nipsey and YG on 'Memories'—there was a meaningful thread attached to it, because of the things that had gone down and what the song was about. What it meant to me, what it would've meant to my manager to have them on that song because he was such a fan. Everything winds up working in the right way when you take the time to think about it.”

    “That's always been one of my favorite songs. We actually recorded it a couple years ago. It was a different song, but Tainy actually brought it back to life so much that it made it even more of a contender. We weren't sure: The Anuel verse was incredible, but it needed that little umph. There was something it needed, and it never really had it, and Tainy is good at that. That was all him, and that was a great moment.”
