“I can tell you that this body of work as a whole has a real sense of optimism about it, in the lyrics. I collaborated with a smaller group of lyricists and people to focus on lyric and melody who really pushed me and helped me to never settle. I tried to say all of what I wanted to say,” Jonas told Billboard about the tracks he’s been working on.
It’s been almost two years since the “Jealous” singer has released a new record, and what we know is that his last bunch of tracks are very different than the music he plans to release next.
“The last body of work was very much a breakup album and heavy in some ways, and this one feels lighter and I think touches on an excitement I feel about this next chapter of my life and the journey that I’m going on. I listen to music to be uplifted and to enjoy my time so I want to create that for my fans as well,” he explained.
As for what his fans can expect message-wise from his eventual album, Jonas teased that it is definitely an evolution of himself through his music.
“I think fans can expect a stepping off point from the last body of work, the last bit of music, and just an evolution. Something that will really showcase this moment in my life and hopefully be a party soundtrack for them, something they can also sit and listen to alone and get reflective and kind of think about their own life,” he continued.
Fingers crossed Jonas’ new songs are released this year… we could definitely use a new album from the former Jonas Brothers crooner!
