Maroon 5 then gathered to play the new song to some 355,000 fans all over the world who had tuned in to the live streaming of the event on Coca-Cola.com/music.

Joe Belliotti, Director of Global Entertainment Marketing for the company, recently explained the 24-hour recording was the "most ambitious and experimental" music event Coca-Cola had ever coordinated.

"This is the most ambitious and experimental effort in music Coca-Cola has ever undertaken."

The song will be available to download by 1st April from Coca-Cola.com/music
