The 'Payphone' singer admits he "loves" playing music with his friends.
Maroon 5's Adam Levine has confessed that he has no plans to go solo because he loves being in a band with his friends.
The 'Moves Like Jagger' star told US publication Paper Mag that he wants to do everything in his power to avoid the possibility of going out on his own.
"I'm going to do everything in my power to avoid [going solo]. Everybody does that," he said. "I spent my whole life doing everything I've ever done for Maroon 5. I love playing music with my friends."
The Voice coach admitted that he always attempts to go against the norm in whatever he does and highlighted that too many front men of bands will often go solo.
"I'm a big fan of not doing everything the way that I'm supposed to. I like to spike in some weirdness - not that it's weird to stay in my band, but nobody does it anymore so it makes it more of a challenge to keep that as your rock," he added.
The band are preparing for the release of their new album 'Overexposed' and Adam revealed the band were fairly unsure of which direction they would be taking their music during the record process.
"We were thinking to ourselves, 'Are we making a pop record? Or are we making a rock record? Are we going really organic? Or are we going really programmed?' And this was more of a song-by-song basis." He continued: "It was kind of a cool collage on this record. I'm really happy with it. It just feels like it doesn't give a s*** and I love that."
Meanwhile, the band have been shooting the music video for their latest single 'Payphone' and Adam was pictured bloodied and bruised during scenes for the shoot.
