MAROON 5 frontman Adam Levine has promised to stop working with other artists so he can focus on writing the band's new album.

The SHE WILL BE LOVED hitmaker, who recently collaborated with hip-hop star Kanye West on HEARD 'EM SAY, insists the time has come for the follow-up to Maroon 5's debut album, SONGS ABOUT JANE.

He says, "I've had enough of collaborations. We can't wait to get another record out.

"It's a slow process, but it's better that way, because we can really start to think about all the different material and lyrics and realise everything perfectly before we let it out in the world."
