Kicking off new music Friday, Maroon 5 released their summery new single “Nobody’s Love,” along with a new music video.
Keeping with social distancing best practices, director David Dobkin captures frontman Adam Levine in his backyard in Los Angeles with plenty of wine and weed for a relaxing evening.
The no-frills video fits the earnestness of the sweet love song, as Levine addresses the camera directly as he sings about never letting his love go.
“You’re the only hand in my back pocket, If you ever left I’d go psychotic/Heaven hear me cryin’, cryin,’” Levine sings in his signature falsetto.
At the end of the video, there is a message from the ACLU about the criminalization of marijuana and its harmful consequences.
“It’s time to end the war on marijuana. The aggressive enforcement of marijuana possession laws needlessly ensures hundreds of thousands of people into the criminal justice system and wastes billions of taxpayers’ dollars. What’s more, it is carried int with staggering racial bias, Despite being a priority for police departments nationwide, the war on Marijuana has failed to reduce marijuana use and availability and diverted resources that could be better invested in our communities.”
The band also included a link to the ACLU, encouraging fans to donate.
“Nobody’s Love” is the second single off the band’s forthcoming new album. It follows another emotional single, “Memories,” which they dropped last September.
While there is no official date or name for their seventh studio album, these two tracks offer a taste of what’s to come.
The LA pop veterans also announced new tour dates for their rescheduled 2021 North American tour, which was postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Along with the new dates, the band has also added a new show, a stop NYC’s Madison Square Garden on September 10, 2021. Tickets for MSG sale go on sale Friday at 10:00 am.
The band also add to cancel a number of shows in the shuffle of rescheduling including their dates at Hartford, CT at XFINITY Theater, as well as Flushing, NY at CITI Field.
