Maroon 5 are getting ready for their next studio installment officially titled "Overexposed". Planning to release it in the United States on June 26, Adam Levine and his bandmates will precede it with a live concert at KIIS FM's annual Wango Tango on May 12.

" 'Overexposed' is definitely our most diverse and poppiest albums yet. We had a great time recording it," the lead singer said in a statement. "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."

James Valentine added, " 'Moves Like Jagger' was the first time we ever worked with an outside writer, so we decided to try it some more on this record. At this point in our career I think it was a good thing to completely mix up our process and it yielded good results, as well as a more collaborative spirit within the band."

The guitarist continued gushing about the project, "We wanted to make something that sounded contemporary with the elements of a lot of early eras of pop music. This is our most 'pop' record ever and we weren't shy about really going for it."

A "rich, pop-infused collection" featuring 10 new tracks, the new CD was execute produced by top-notch music maker Max Martin with additional tracks produced by Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder. The songs recorded for the effort included "Payphone" featuring Wiz Khalifa, "One More Night" and "Beautiful Goodbye".

The band are expected to perform their new song when taking the stage at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA for the Wango Tango. They are joined in the lineup by Khalifa, Nicki Minaj, Pitbull, Foster the People, B.o.B, The Wanted, Gym Class Heroes, J. Cole, Big Sean, K'Naan, Chiddy Bang, Wallpaper. and Diggy Simmons.
