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 frontman Adam Levine. The video also features work by acclaimed cinematographer Jeff Cronenweth (David Fincher’s Fight ClubandSocial 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.
