Maroon 5's 'Overexposed' is due to drop on June 26 and one of the album's three bonus tracks, titled 'Wipe Your Eyes,' has landed online for your audio pleasure. The song is a piano-driven semi-ballad, lead by frontman Adam Levine's falsetto, which doesn’t soar as high as it normally does. It shows his range and his dynamic scope. Besides, it's downright pretty.
Listen to Maroon 5, 'Payphone' (The Sound of Arrows Remix)
In the plot-driven clip, which is completely devoid of performance footage save for Levine singing the lyrics into a pay phone receiver, the frontman plays an insecure banker who hates his life and his job... Until the bank is robbed by crooks (played by the band members) and he attempts to become the "hero" in a hail of bullets as he makes his escape and steals a gun off a robber.
In what looks like a scene straight out of an action movie, members of Maroon 5 play bank robbers who prey on Adam Levine's place of employment in a behind-the-scenes clip from the video shoot for 'Payphone' (via E! Online). Levine ditches his normally cool rocker duds for a boring grey suit and thick-rimmed glasses, while his gun-wielding bandmates don all black and masks as they fire at the frontman.
Neoclubber's dance cover of Maroon 5's new smash 'Payphone' featuring Wiz Khalifa is an imaginative reworking of the breezy, summery song. It's constructed of a female vocal, loads of Auto-Tuning and synths. It's very right now and quite excellent, actually. The falsetto of singer Adam Levine has been swapped out for a female!
