We’d be totally lying if we said we weren’t still confused by the Jonas Brothers breakup, but we have moved on to the “acceptance” phase of this traumatic event. We hoped that Nick and Joe would at least still work on their solo music post-breakup. Nick Jonas & The Administration is one of our favorite under-appreciated albums of all time (if you’re commanding Prince’s band at the age of 17…nothing but respect). And as great as “Love Slayer” was, we’re still hoping to hear some of the “weird music he wrote with Robert Schwartzman” that Joe mentioned in his NY Magazine tell-all.
We’re thrilled that Nick Jonas has signed to Island Records and released his first post-breakup single as a solo artist! Nick J really is off the chain in this new single. Listen to the track, “Chains,” below!
It’s definitely a departure from his work with the Administration, but it sounds a lot like the Jonas Brothers tracks we heard off of their unreleased album, “V,” on tour last summer. By the way, we love how Nick just dropped his single. No months of hype, no constant tweeting of the word “soon.” Just music.
