Maroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine has told MTV that while there are “some new directions” on their brand new record Hands All Over, it still “sounds like f---king Maroon 5”.

“There's some Motown. There's even some country [and] some straight-ahead, really simple pop rock music that's kind of our thing," Levine said.

"It sounds like f---ing Maroon 5," he explained. "What you're thinking of is what it is, but there's a unique shift to it."

Levine also declared that legendary producer Mutt Lange was so involved in the sound of the album that “clearly we weren't on this record. He was the boss.” But he doesn’t seem bitter about that, in fact he enjoyed it.

"Granted, we kicked and screamed and fought, a lot with each other and even with him. He's such an even-keeled guy and so good at what he does, so we trust him."

"He goes for huge and international and it was such a refreshing thing to working with someone who really felt we still had something to prove," he raved to MTV. "We always feel that way but sometimes we don't have producers that necessarily push us . . . to do our best.

As for which bands influenced them for the album, they admit they didn't have time to turn on their iPods while recording. "It's nice to be uncorrupted from our influences," he continued. "We weren't imitating anybody."
