Bad news everyone, it looks like Maroon 5 are going to make another album. It’s still in the very early stages though, so there’s always the chance that they might just give up. Fingers crossed, eh?

The band are currently still touring to promote last year’s monstrosity ‘Overexposed’, but guitarist James Valentine tells Billboard: “We definitely have a couple of amazing [new] songs that will be on the record. I think we just really like making music now, and I think we’re more prolific than ever. But at the same time it’s going to be awhile before the record comes out, so maybe some of the stuff we’re doing now will fall by the wayside by the time we actually put it out. But we’ve got some great stuff started, and we’re all very excited”.

As for how the new material might sound overall, that’s apparently still up in the air. Valentine continued: “I thought I had a handle on that, but it kind of keeps changing. There was a first batch of songs that seemed like they were darker and maybe a little more organic-sounding, but now there’s some other songs that… it’s hard to describe, and I think we’re going to really find out where it’s going in the next few months”.

Could it maybe go in the bin?
