Listen to Maroon 5′s Piano-Driven ‘Wipe Your Eyes’
Maroon 5‘s ‘Overexposed’ is due to drop on June 26 and one of the album’s three bonus tracks, titled ‘Wipe Your Eyes,’ has landed online for your audio pleasure. The song is a piano-driven semi-ballad, lead by frontman Adam Levine‘s falsetto, which doesn’t soar as high as it normally does. It shows his range and his dynamic scope. Besides, it’s downright pretty.
It’s quite the romantic song, dipped in a bath of sentimentality, with Levine crooning, “I’m here to wipe your eyes.” In essence, Levine is stating that he is the support system for the lady he is singing to. Knees… meet weak.
It’s such a sweet song, with a little bit of electronics and baby-like cooing in the beginning. The song also boasts a ’60s vocal group vibe, too. While Maroon 5 usually have a rock ‘n’ roll edge, they show off their dreamy, piano pop side here.
Blur’s Damon Albarn co-wrote the song with Levine and a host of others.
We can just imagine a ‘The Voice’ contestant singing this song during the blind auditions to try and curry favor with Levine in picking them.
