Adam Levine is Excited for Maroon 5’s ‘Rebirth’

Adam Levine performs with Maroon 5Adam Levine sees Maroon 5's new album as a "rebirth" of the group. The band are releasing fourth record, Overexposed, and frontman Adam wants it to show a different side to him and his bandmates.

"People often misinterpreted confidence or my playful cockiness with arrogance. I'm certainly an extremely humble person and my mother raised me right. I'm always polite, I'm always nice and never mean. And I'm excited, so excited to talk about the new record as I see it as a rebirth for Maroon 5," said the singer, who is joined by Michael Madden, PJ Morton, James Valentine and Matt Flynn in the band.

Adam also said he struggled when critics used to give him and the band - who went through a period where they didn't have a single hit between 2007's "Makes Me Wonder" and 2011's "Moves Like Jagger" - a tough time: "I put my heart and soul into our songs and love them, so when someone writes they don't like them or me, it hurt. But the ups and downs have been really important. And now I don't know why it's working, but it seems to be, so I keep doing it. Now it's OK to like us. For ages it was uncool to like Maroon 5."
