Los Angeles: Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine of NBC`s talent show ‘The Voice’ are putting their voices together on a new Maroon 5 single.

Aguilera is featured with Levine and his band on the tune ‘Moves Like Jagger,’ which will be released next week on iTunes.

They`ll perform the song on the June 21 episode of ‘The Voice,’ airing 9-11 p.m. EDT. The studio version will be available to buy online following the show, NBC announced Tuesday during this week`s episode.

The track was recorded last month in Los Angeles, Levine said in a statement, adding that it was "great" getting to work with Aguilera. The song was described as quintessential Maroon 5 power pop, with an upbeat tune.

Aguilera called the collaboration a "wonderful opportunity."

Levine and Aguilera, along with Cee Lo Green and Blake Shelton, are coaches on ‘The Voice,’ which awards the winning singer a record contract and a USD 100,000 prize.

Levine won`t be idle for long after the June 29 season finale: Maroon 5 is co-headlining a North American summer tour with Train that begins July 22 in California.
