Wednesday, June 15, 2011
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine of NBC's talent show "The Voice" are putting their voices together on a new Maroon 5 single.
Aguilera is featured with Levine and his band on the tune "Moves Like Jagger," which will be released next week on iTunes.
They'll perform the song on the June 21 episode of "The Voice." The studio version will be available to buy online following the show, NBC announced Tuesday during this week's episode.
The track was recorded last month in Los Angeles, Levine said in a statement, adding that it was "great" getting to work with Aguilera. The song was described as quintessential Maroon 5 power pop, with an upbeat tune.
Aguilera called the collaboration a "wonderful opportunity."
Levine and Aguilera, along with Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton, are coaches on "The Voice," which awards the winning singer a record contract and a $100,000 prize.
Levine won't be idle for long after the June 29 season finale: Maroon 5 is co-headlining a North American summer tour with Train that begins July 22 in California.
