Maroon 5’s oft-shirtless frontman Adam Levine has established his very own label, 222 Records.

‘Glee’ actor and pop star Matthew Morrison has been named as 222’s inaugural signing, and will release his second solo album through the new label in the spring.

Says Levine, who has named the label after his 222 clothing line and a numbered tattoo on his arm: “Starting my own label has been a long-time goal of mine, and I am thrilled to be at the point in my career where it is finally happening. Great things are in store for [Matthew] with this release”.

Morrison also partakes in the label love-in: “Adam and I share the same vision as we begin working on my record together”. How sweet.
