Maroon 5 began writing the songs that appear on <em>Hands All Over</em> after winding down from a world tour in support of their 2007 studio release <em>It Won’t Be Soon Before Long</em>. Several months later, the band received a phone call from Lange, who had heard the band were beginning to write a new album, and expressed an interest in producing it. The result is <em>Hands All Over</em>, a monumental record chock full of buoyant, unforgettable melodies. Recorded at Lange’s Switzerland studio, the members of Maroon 5 locked themselves in the mountains to patiently craft their latest effort. Starting with the hard-rocking title track, the album’s 15 tracks take several intoxicating twists and turns including such compositions as "Out of Goodbyes," a stunning country ballad infused with musical and vocal contributions from Nashville chart-toppers Lady Antebellum. Long-time fans will get a thrill out of the single "Misery," with its funky guitars and high-stepping melody, as well as the propulsive "Stutter,"melody rich "Give A Little More" and "Don’t Know Much About That," which professes a classic soulful vibe.
