Grammy award winning recording artist Maroon 5 visits the Philippines for another explosive concert performance in Maroon 5 LIVE in Manila, on May 23, 2011 at the SMX Convention Center in SM Mall of Asia Grounds Pasay City. The 3 time Grammy awardees began as Best New Artist in 2005 as well as earning gold and platinum awards in over 35 countries now sets out on a new intoxicating and electrifying world tour promoting their latest studio album "Hands All Over".

"Hands All Over" is released by their international record label-A&M/Octone and distributed locally by MCA Music. The highly anticipated third album is produced by rock studio legend Mutt Lange, who's career catalogue includes rock music greats-AC/DC, Def Leppard and The Cars to name a few. Through the help of Lange's know-how "Hands All Over" is a killer hybrid of rock, pop, funk and R&B. More over the album's debut single "Misery"-a collage of funky guitar riffs and high-stepping melodies had made its way to the top 10 of the Top 40 radio chart in the US early in its release.

Making the Album

Maroon 5 had begun writing new material for their third studio album right after winding down from their previous world tour in support of their 2007 studio release "It Won't Be Long". Several months later, the much interested producer maven Lange teamed up with the band to create a monumental record brimming with unforgettable, bright and breezy tunes.

Along with the smash hit carrier "Misery" are 12 noteworthy compositions such as "Out of Goodbyes" depicted to be a stunning country ballad infused with musical and vocal inputs by Nashville chart-topper Lady Antebellum. Following that are more exciting singles: the propulsive "Stutter", the melody rich "Give a Little More" and the timeless soulful vibe "Never Gonna Leave This Bed."

Speaking of Maroon 5, I saw a very intriguing picture of lead singer Adam Levine. In a case of life imitating art, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has brought the name of the band's recent album, "Hands All Over" to life in a stunning nude pictorial – all for a good cause. Levine, 31, appears stripped down in the February issue of British Cosmopolitan with the hands of his girlfriend, Victoria's Secret model Anne Vyalitsyna, covering his privates.

The shoot was done on behalf of Everyman, which is "the UK's leading prostate and testicular cancer campaign," according to its website.
