expands his fashion empire this Thursday with the launch of his
2014 women's summer collection
, but he hasn't forgotten about his music career: a new
album's on the way, too.
In a statement, the singer and Voice coach says, "The best thing about designing a women's collection is that I was able to create pieces that I would like to see a woman wear." He adds, "I was thrilled with how the men's collection turned out, and it's been a really cool process working with the Kmart design team to replicate that simple yet sophisticated style for a woman."
The collection includes colorful twill shorts, crocheted bralettes, assorted denim pieces, floral kimono tops, maxi dresses and sheer, lacy blouses, as well as a range of accessories. The collection will be available on Thursday exclusively at Kmart and ShopYourWay.com.
Meanwhile, Maroon 5 posted a note on Twitter Tuesday saying, " #albuM5 is in the works! More details coming soon!"
When it's released, the new Maroon 5 album will be the follow-up to the wildly-successful Overexposed , which featured smash hits like "Payphone," "Daylight" and "Love Somebody." It will be, as the band's tweet suggests, their fifth studio album, and is expected to mark the return of their keyboard player, Jesse Carmichael , who sat out the last tour/album cycle.
