NPR Music and All Things Considered launch a new summer music series today. For “You Must Hear This,” musicians from various genres will pick a favorite piece of music and explain why it inspires them. In the debut segment, Jesse Carmichael and Adam Levine of Maroon 5 reveal their love for Prince’s Purple Rain. “It’s Hendrix, it’s James Brown, it’s outer space, it’s church, it’s sex, it’s heavy metal,” says Levine. “But at the end of the day, it’s just Prince at his absolute best — in my not-so-humble opinion.” Audio from the segment won’t be posted until this evening, but NPR Music has the web page up with music videos for two songs on the record.
