The summer of 2016 hurt like a motherf--ker—and that's because it had been about a year since Maroon 5 released its last song, "This Summer's Gonna Hurt like a Motherf--ker." Late Tuesday night, the pop band returned with a new track, "Don't Wanna Know," featuring rapper Kendrick Lamar. The song is available on Amazon, Apple Music, Google Play, iTunes and Spotify.

"Do you think of me? Of what we used to be? / Is it better now that I'm not around? / My friends are actin' strange / They don't bring up your name / Are you happy now? / Are you happy now?" Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine sings. "I don't wanna know, know, know, know / Who's taking you home, home, home, home / I'm loving you so, so, so, so / The way I used to love you, no / I don't wanna know, know, know, know / Who's taking you home, home, home, home / I'm loving you so, so, so, so / The way I used to love you, oh / I don't wanna know."

Maroon 5 will premiere the accompanying music video on NBC's Today Oct. 14. David Dobkin, who previously directed their "Sugar" music video, returned to direct "Don't Wanna Know." Maroon 5 will also perform its new single for the first time on The Ellen DeGeneres Show Nov. 3. The band—which also includes Jesse Carmichael, Matt Flynn, Mickey Madden, PJ Morton and James Valentine—is currently on tour through 2017.
