It’s been a while since Marron 5 surprised us with some new music and their first single of 2023 is finally here. They shared the new song “Middle Ground” with their fans and dropped a “heartfelt and honest” music video to promote its release.

The David Dobkin-directed visual is one of the band’s most personal yet, and it shows the whole band hanging out together and having the time of their life in Malibu.

“The creative was to focus on the band – together – through a series of documentary-like images and vignettes: showing the process of creating the track, a ‘making the song’ with the band playing, discussing things and working parts out, including the casual goofing-off moments,” Adam Levine told People.

This visual is very personal for the Maroon 5 frontman because it also features his wife Behati Prinsloo and daughters Dusty Rose and Gio Grace, who also recently supported him during the band’s show in Vegas.

“Middle Ground” marks the band’s first major release since 2021, when they dropped their last studio album Jordi. This record debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200 chart and produced singles “Memories”, “Nobody’s Love”, and “Beautiful Mistakes” ft. Megan Thee Stallion.
