Maroon 5 have dropped a music video for “Nobody’s Love,” which also serves as the band’s endorsement of decriminalizing marijuana use.
“Nobody’s Love” is the second track to drop from Maroon 5’s upcoming seventh studio album, following their hit single “Memories” released last September. In the video, singer Adam Levine sits on a Los Angeles hilltop at night singing the song to an iPhone while rolling and eventually lighting up a joint. The video ends with a powerful statement from the American Civil Liberties Union that condemns the aggressive persecution of marijuana users.
“It’s time to end the War on Marijuana,” the statement reads. “The aggressive enforcement of marijuana possession laws needlessly ensnares hundreds of thousands of people into the criminal justice system and wastes billions of taxpayers’ dollars. What’s more, it is carried out with staggering racial bias. Despite being a priority for police departments, the War on Marijuana has failed to reduce marijuana use and availability and diverted resources that could be better invested in our communities.”
The clip continues the band’s relationship with filmmaker David Dobkin, who helped create the intimate video for “Memories” along those for Maroon 5 staples “Sugar” and “Girls Like You.”
Maroon 5 are expected to perform “Nobody’s Love” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on August 10. While you wait, watch their new video here:
