Earlier this week Maroon 5 debuted a music video for the title track of their latest album, “Hands All Over.”
Check it out below!
I really like this video. It has a rock edge to it, which fits the song. I also really like the effects that were used.
I am completely confused about whether “Hands All Over” is the band’s next single or not. I would have put my money on “Stutter” being the third single from Hands All Over, possibly followed up “Never Gonna Leave This Bed.”
Don’t get me wrong, I love “Hands All Over.” It’s one of my favorite tracks on Maroon 5’s latest album. I was completely over the moon when they performed it at their show in San Francisco last month. It’s just that I hve never pictured it being a single.
I’m just confused as to what is going on. Music videos are expensive to make, especially ones with fancy effects, so I wouldn’t think they would make a video without the song being their next single.
What do y’all think of Maroon 5’s new video?

Last week, Lee DeWyze took part in Mix 106.5’s Very Merry Mixxer alongside Angel Taylor and the popular band, Plain White T’s.
He performed second that night, and kicked off his eight-song acoustic set with “Earth Stood Still.” He followed up with a slightly altered version of “Dear Isabelle.” DeWyze changed up the melody just slightly, making the song sound more upbeat.
DeWyze has found balance in his vocals between a soft and subtle vocal and his larger notes. I definitely prefer the stripped down versions of the songs versus the polished studio tracks, because they showcase his true rough around the edges musical style and folk-pop vocals.
One of the highlights from DeWyze’s set was his take on Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah.” His performance was stunning.
I’ve always really liked DeWyze’s voice on this song, and during this particular moment at the show, I was just in awe. It was a fantastic performance.
The other big highlight of the night was “Brooklyn Bridge,” which DeWyze closed his set with. This song should always be performed acoustically; The sentiment behind the lyrics comes across much more powerful.
DeWyze’s stage presence has definitely come a long way from his American Idol days. He bantered a bit with the crowd about how he had been playing his guitar a little too hard, and how much he’s enjoying playing his songs off of Live It Up.
The one thing that I would have changed about DeWyze’s set would be the order of his set list. He played his current single “Sweet Serendipity” in the middle of his set instead of singing it last, which I thought was odd. I would have rearranged his entire set to make it flow a little bit better.
I found DeWyze to be pretty entertaining. His vocals were really on point, and the crowd seemed to love him.
