Songland, the new music competition executive produced by Maroon 5 frontman and The Voice coach Adam Levine and Eurythmics’ Dave Stewart has a premiere date. The new show will kick off on NBC Tuesday May 28 after America’s Got Talent at 10-11 p.m. ET/PT before moving to Wednesdays 9-10 pm beginning Aug. 14.

It’s more or less the time slot World of Dance held last summer, before the show moved to a Sunday night mid-season spot, opposite ABC’s American Idol.

According to NBC’s official announcement, Songland provides a one-of-a-kind opportunity for talented up-and-coming songwriters to be exposed to and mentored by three music producers per episode who are responsible for today’s biggest hits.

The panel of producer-songwriters includes Ryan Tedder (lead singer of OneRepublic and  producer of Adele, Beyoncé and Taylor Swift), Ester Dean ( songwriter and producer of Rihanna, Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj) and Shane McAnally (songwriter and producer of Kacey Musgraves, Kelly Clarkson and Sam Hunt with 38 #1 country records).

The series takes an inside look at the creative process and provides one winner per episode the opportunity to have their song recorded for a global audience by the chart-topping guest recording artists featured in their show.

Songland is executive produced by The Voice producer Audrey Morrissey, director Ivan Dudynsky, Eurythmics co-founder Dave Stewart, Chad Hines, and multi-Grammy-winning recording artist and Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine. Josh Gummersall will serve as producer along with Ryan Tedder. The concept was devised by Stewart, Morrissey and Dudynsky.

  1. I like the idea of a songwriting competition on prime time so I’ll give it a chance but anything put forth by Adam Levine just doesn’t give me a good feeling

  2. How real is this supposed to be? What are the parameters? Are they showing clips of the process of collaborative song writing – or the succession of the moving parts like lyrics, music bed, demo vocals, melodies, arrangement choices, production, etc. or is this one *all about the judges* too? ?

  3. I like the premise of this. If it took Adam Levine’s name to sell it I’m ok with that… maybe it will also open the door for him to take a “break” from coaching/ruining the Voice :)
