Maroon 5 are at it again, dropping another remix to accompany their newest single. The band released the Hot Shade & Mike Perry remix of "Cold" on Thursday night, and you can listen to the new version of the song now by using the media player included with this article. The remix is also available for download on iTunes.
The original version of "Cold" was released on Valentine's Day and was another success for the three-time Grammy Award-winning band. It reached 16th on the Billboard Hot 100, along with 15th on the magazine's Adult Top 40 Singles Chart. The single also achieved the 14th spot on the Mainstream Top 40 Singles Chart and 29th on the Adult Contemporary Chart. Overseas the track landed on more than a dozen foreign charts from Australia to Switzerland, with its best placement being third in Venezuela.
"Cold" has laid down a catchy dance groove for Maroon 5 fans to start their year off with, mixing Adam Levine's always reliable vocals with a solid assist from Future to create a combination of party song and dysfunctional relationship song. That would seem to be an impossible combination but the band has used its creativity to make it work.
(They've also come up with possibly their most trippy music video ever, which involves Levine going to the wrong party and getting a spiked drink that sends him on another unexpected adventure. Between that and the video for "Maps" last year, Levine gets into a lot of trouble at random parties.)
But if music fans are experiencing a bit of deja vu, that's because Thursday's news is not new territory for Maroon 5. The promotional trajectory of "Cold" mirrors that of the band's previous single, "Don't Wanna Know." After that song came out last year, the band also released a remix featuring Ryan Riback. So as Maroon 5 continues to release new singles to keep fans entertained until their next studio album arrives sometime later in 2017, it's a good bet that listeners can expect remixes to follow.
Fans can also expect the band to hit the road this summer. Maroon 5 were recently announced as one of the acts performing at KIIS FM's Wango Tango 2017 after wowing the festival's audience last year. This year's Wango Tango takes place on Saturday, May 13 at the StubHub Center in Carson, CA. Other acts scheduled to perform include Katy Perry and Zedd. Click here for tickets.
"Cold (Hot Shade & Mike Perry Remix)" is now available on iTunes.
