The new Jonas Brothers album includes love letters for Priyanka Chopra and Sophie Turner. The trio recently got back together to release new music.
After the release of Sucker on March 19, the brothers revealed Cool and now will drop their new album titled Happiness Begins on 7 June. Nick revealed that the album is the follow-up to the 2009 album Lines, Vines and Trying Times.
He also said that in the album, Joe penned a song for his fiancee Sophie Turner called Hesitate and that he penned a song for his wife Priyanka called I Believe. He added that Sophie and Priyanka also developed their new songs with them, saying, “Priyanka and Sophie love pop music and listen to Spotify’s Today’s Top Hits or Apple Music all the time. So they were a really good gauge, like, ‘Does this sound good?'”
The Jonas Brothers worked with Ryan Tedder, Greg Kurstin, Max Martin, and Justin Tranter for the new album, and Ryan revealed, “We would write a song in about 90 minutes. We would cut it in the second hour. It would be demo’d by dinner. Sam Smith and Adele are maybe the only other acts I’ve ever worked with, where they’re like, ‘Oh, my gosh. It’s 6 pm. Let’s call it a day.'”
Nick also said of the Jonas Brothers’ return, “It feels like the second bite of the apple is potentially going to be even bigger because we’re in a healthy place, we’re enjoying the ride. And I think the music is a reflection of that.”
Happiness Returns drops on June 7.
