While lead single “Maps” continues to climb the Billboard Hot 100 (Currently #7), Maroon 5 have decided to share a brand-new track entitled “It Was Always You“! The track serves as their first promotional iTunes countdown single and was released alongside the pre-order of their upcoming fifth studio album V, which is set to hit stores on September 2 via Interscope Records. Written and produced alongside The Monsters and The Strangerz (aka Alexander Izquierdo, Jordan Johnson, and Stefan Johnson), “It Was Always You” is a soaring pop ballad that finds frontman Adam Levine pouring out emotion like never before above minimal drum patterns and sparse, ambient electronica. I’m completely blown away, the song is undeniably great and Adam has never sounded this good. Phil Collins meets 2014 – I love it. What do you guys think?
