Every Song Ranked on The Jonas Brothers’ New Record ‘The Album’

Jonas Brothers fans had to wait four long years for a new album — although, that’s nothing compared to the ten-year gap between 2009’s Lines, Vines and Trying Times and the band’s 2019 comeback record Happiness Begins. Nevertheless, Friday (May 12) certainly gives major cause for celebration, the trio’s long-awaited sixth studio record The Album finally arrives, with 12 new tracks made with 80 degree weather and clear skies in mind.

Inspired by such legends soul and pop legends as Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire and the Bee Gees, The Album is saturated with bright synths and unabashed joy, as Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas profess their love for their ladies, their kids and their carefree lifestyle, making for a final product that’s poised for many hours of summer playback. It comes after months of buildup — as well as one long COVID-19 pandemic — with the guys having tested out many of the songs over the course of coast-to-coast residencies and a sold-out run at Yankee Stadium. This August, they’ll go on a proper North American tour in support of projects new and old, promising to play music from all five of their internationally-released albums.

“I hope people feel like they’re part of our journey for a moment in time,” Nick says of the band’s new era in a statement. “One of the things I always say about Jonas fans, which I think is the greatest honor ever, is that I think they’ve really allowed us to be a part of their journey. We’ve stayed true to ourselves, most
importantly, and who we are as artists, what we want to say, and what is authentic to us. I hope
people feel a part of our journey and know we’re honored to be a part of theirs.”

“Just go for it,” adds Joe, addressing first-time listeners of The Album. “Sit down with it and listen to it from start to finish. Please don’t skip any songs.”
