"I am excited to be working on my next album with such an incredible singer, writer and producer as Adam Levine," the Glee star said in a statement. "Adam and I share the same vision as we begin working on my record together."

Naturally, Levine also shared his enthusiasm for both his new endeavor as well as the chance to collaborate with Morrison.

"Starting my own label has been a long-time goal of mine and I am thrilled to be at the point in my career where it is finally happening," he stated. "I am excited for everyone to hear Matthew's forthcoming album. Great things are in store for him with this release."

222 Records will release Morrison's sophomore album sometime this spring.
