Three-time GRAMMY® Award winning multiplatinum band Maroon 5 debuts today the music video for their new hit single “Memories” (222 Records/ Interscope Records). Directed by acclaimed director David Dobkin, who also helmed the band’s “Sugar” and “Girls Like You” videos, “Memories” features a stripped down emotional performance of the song by Maroon 5 front man Adam Levine. Dobkin's combined previous work with Maroon 5 have totaled over 6 Billion views! The video also features work by acclaimed cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth (David Fincher’s Fight Club and The Social Network).
The release of “Memories” marks the first new music from the Los Angeles band since the release of their global anthem “Girls Like You” in 2017. Produced by Adam Levine and The Monsters & Strangerz, as well as Executive Produced by Jacob "J Kash" Hindlin, “Memories” marks a moment of creative and personal progression for Maroon 5. The minimalist ballad starkly pairs a lilting clean guitar with chantable and evocative lyrics from Levine. In addition to representing another sonic side, it tackles uncharted subject matter for the group— namely loss—but from a different angle. Following its release, “Memories” debut chart position claimed Maroon 5’s 30th Billboard Hot 100 entry and is their 22nd song to land in the top 40 on the chart.
