Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine says the band's new album, Overexposed is a rebirth of the group as it shows them in a different light.
Maroon 5 are releasing their fourth record and Levine says it will help show a new side of the band to the audience, reported Sun online.
"People often misinterpreted confidence or my playful cockiness with arrogance. I'm certainly an extremely humble person and my mother raised me right. I'm always polite, I'm always nice and never mean. And I'm excited, so excited to talk about the new record as I see it as a rebirth for Maroon 5," Levine said.
The singer also said that he struggled when critics used to give him and the band a tough time when they did not give a single hit between 2007's Makes Me Wonder and 2011's Moves Like Jagger.
"I put my heart and soul into our songs and love them, so when someone writes they don't like them or me, it hurt. But the ups and downs have been really important. And now I don't know why it's working, but it seems to be, so I keep doing it. Now it's OK to like us. For ages it was uncool to like Maroon 5," he added.
