Maroon 5 to drop 'Overexposed' in June

With "Moves Like Jagger" taking over radio for much of last year (and this year, too), Maroon 5 are very much aware that they've been a bit overexposed — so much so, that they've named their fourth studio album exactly that. The pop-rock group will release their new album, "Overexposed," on June 26. Considering frontman Adam Levine's typical state of undress, we couldn't imagine a better album title.

Bing music: Maroon 5

"Overexposed is definitely one of our most diverse and poppiest albums yet," Levin said in a statement. "We had a great time recording it. I can't wait for our fans to hear the record, as well as hitting the road to play it live for everyone later this year."
 
He's not kidding about it being poppy. The 10-track LP boasts production work from Ryan Tedder, Benny Blanco and Max Martin, who executive produced the entire album. But that's not to say Maroon 5 are afraid of going a bit more urban, too, as Wiz Khalifa is featured on the track "Payphone."
 
Will you be picking up "Overexposed" this June? Or does it all depend on how much skin Levine shows on the inevitably sensual album cover?
