Jonas Brothers new album inspired by Frank Ocean, Miguel and more
It's been four years since The Jonas Brothers came out with a full studio album -- "Lines, Vines, and Trying Times" dropped back in 2009 -- and the trio is ready to show the world who they have become in the past few years.
The forthcoming album will "represent who we are and where we're at now," eldest member Kevin Jonas tells Billboard. "In the past we used influences that inspired us -- the Beatles, the Jackson 5, things like that. This time around we used influences that were happening for us now, new music, things that were getting us inspired to get in the studio and write. We really listen to a lot of Frank Ocean, Miguel, Calvin Harris, artists that were doing something unique in the moment we were writing this album. It really adapted to the way we were thinking and where we were at. We were just trying to be who we were and who we are, and I think that really helped."
While the untitled album has yet to get a release date, Kevin assures fans that it should definitely come out this fall. But if it's finished now, why the delay?
According to Kevin, the trio had a bit of rough time in February of 2009. "We got in the studio and we started writing and it didn't feel right," Kevin says. "It was like, 'Ugh, it's not happening yet.' So we took some time off. We were able to say, 'OK, this isn't right for us yet,' and that was fine." The group revisited the album in June of 2012, and released the singles "First Time" and "Pom Poms," as well as played new songs "Meet You In Paris," "Let's Go," and "Wedding Bells" in live shows.
