We're following, following Maroon 5 on the path to the release of their fifth studio set, appropriately titled V. Set for a Sept. 2 release, the Adam Levine-helmed group have unwrapped an exclusive album ZinePak, to coincide with the drop date. Featuring a 64-page magazine (which takes fans behind the creation of the record, as well as offers cool tour content), the package will be the perfect addition to any hardcore fans' (like us) collection.
There will also be never-before seen interviews with the band, music engineer Noah Passovoy, art director Todd Russell and photographer/videographer Travis Schneider. Of course, that's not all, fans will be gifted with vibrant lyric magnets, five bonus album tracks (including two remixes) and much, much more.

The Cocteau Twins' 1990 masterpiece is still the blueprint for dream pop.
For a band whose lyrics were famously difficult to make out most of the time, the Cocteau Twins left an indelible impact on the world of pop music.
The Scottish trio emerged in the 1980s as some of the most notable pioneers of dream pop, a subgenre of alternative rock defined by airy, sublime sonic textures. But it was their sixth album, Heaven or Las Vegas—which turns 30 today—that truly withstood the test of time, affirming the Cocteau Twins' status as perhaps the most important dream pop act of all time.
Now that Banksy's "Flower Thrower" trademark has been revoked, anyone can profit off his work.
This week anonymous street artist Banksy officially lost the European trademark to his "Flower Thrower" mural.
The guerrilla graffiti artist had engaged in a prolonged legal battle with the small greeting card company Full Colour Black—which was selling products featuring the image of a Palestinian man throwing a bouquet of flowers. But now a panel at the European Union Intellectual Property Office has announced their decision to revoke the artist's trademark on the grounds that he could not definitively prove himself to be the mural's creator.
