Adam Levine of Maroon 5 sings a haunting acoustic version of his son “Lost Stars” in a new video released today (Aug. 29) ahead of his upcoming album.
The song is also featured on the soundtrack of his movie, “Begin Again.”
Levine appeared in the music drama about musicians struggling to make it in the East Village of New York City. He plays Dave Kohl the long-time boyfriend of a fiercely independent singer-songwriter named Gretta played by Keira Knightley.
Dave lands a record deal and heads to New York City with Gretta. But fame puts a huge strain on his relationship. He strays and they breakup and Gretta is left to fend for herself.
But she is discovered playing in an East Village dive by a struggling music executive played by Mark Ruffalo. He begins a collaboration with her and their lives take a turn for the better.
The film was released in June and scored an 89 percent rating on rottentomatoes, which tracks reviews.
The song also appears on Maroon 5’s fifth studio album, which is slated for release on Sept. 2, pushed back a bit from its original August release date.
