The Maroon 5 music video for their latest single “Maps” features frontman, Adam Levine as the star in a mini-movie that depicts a night out for a couple that takes a tragic turn.

The twist is, that except for the very last scene, the story is told in flash-forwards. As the protagonist who sets off an unfortunate series of events when he makes a very bad decision at a party, Adam is a solid lead in this compelling little piece of video.

Warnings: Language and violent images ahead.

Adam, who will be returning as a coach when The Voice returns to NBC in September, makes his feature film debut alongside  Mark Ruffalo, Keira Knightley, and Hailee Steinfeld,  in Begin Again, set to open in wide release on July 11.

The singer told The Hollywood Reporter a few months ago that he took the role in the romantic drama for next to no pay.

“I want to have good experiences. I don’t want to do a bunch of s–t that I hate,” he said. “I want to treat [acting] completely differently because I have the very fortunate luxury of not having to think of this in terms of money.”

In it, he plays a would-be rockstar who lands in NYC with his girlfriend to record his first album. Check out the lyric video for “Lost Stars,” his musical contribution to the film:

    I really like Lost Stars

    Lost Stars is a great song. Love it! Reminds me of the old M5.
    I like Maps too, but even though Adam shows his acting chops, some images in the video are too graphic for my taste..

    I love Lost Stars! It was so poignant, with beautiful vocals and lyrics. I definitely plan to see the movie and to buy the Soundtrack. I really like the work that Adam has been doing lately and I’m anxious to hear the rest of the soundtrack.

    Lost Stars is a great track. Wish there were more Maroon 5 songs like that in the future. I agree that it also reminds me of old Maroon 5, which is the Maroon 5 I miss dearly.

    Lost Stars is a beautiful song. I love the way it builds up.
