Maroon 5 have shared the official music video for their new hit single ‘Memories’, which is out now through 222 Records/ Interscope Records. You can watch it below.
Directed by acclaimed director David Dobkin, who also helmed the band’s ‘Sugar’ and ‘Girls Like You’ videos, ‘Memories’ features a stripped down emotional performance of the song by Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine. The video also features work by acclaimed cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth (David Fincher’s Fight Club and Social Network).
The release of ‘Memories’ marks the first new music from the Los Angeles band since the release of their global anthem ‘Girls Like You’ in 2017. Produced by Adam Levine and The Monsters & Strangerz, as well as Executive Produced by Jacob “J Kash” Hindlin, ‘Memories’ marks a moment of creative and personal progression for Maroon 5. The minimalist ballad starkly pairs a lilting clean guitar with chantable and evocative lyrics from Levine. In addition to representing another sonic side, it tackles uncharted subject matter for the group— namely loss—but from a different angle. Following its release, ‘Memories’ debut chart position claimed Maroon 5’s 30th Billboard Hot 100 entry and is their 22nd song to land in the top 40 on the chart.
Maroon 5 are one of the 21st century’s biggest acts. To date, the universally renowned Los Angeles band have achieved three Grammy Awards and sold over 56 million albums, 328 million singles worldwide and earned gold and platinum certifications in more than 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane and their double platinum album, It Won’t be Soon Before Long.
The band then went on to release studio albums, Hands All Over, which featured the anthemic ‘Moves Like Jagger,’ and ‘Overexposed’. The band’s fifth studio album, V, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and featured the chart-topping hit singles ‘Maps,’ ‘Animals’ and ‘Sugar,’ helping the band set a record for the most Number 1’s by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history, with 10 in total. The music video for the album’s Grammy-nominated single ‘Sugar’ has over 3 billion views to date, making Maroon 5 the first band to achieve that many views on a video. Maroon 5 released their 6th studio album, Red Pill Blues, in late 2017 via 222/ Interscope. The album features the global hit single ‘Girls Like You’ ft. Cardi B.
