Jonas Brothers have teased the release of their album for several months. In April, Kevin Jonas posted a photo of their album cover along with a caption to fans. “After 7 years of not working together living life and finding ourselves in our own paths we came back to give you our journey in album form,” he wrote. “I’m so excited for you to hear Happiness Begins out June 7th. I have to say out of all the albums we have done together I’m the most proud of this one. I wish I could hand it to you now but you will just have to wait a little bit longer.”
During a recent People Magazine interview, Nick Jonas talked about how excited they are for fans to listen. “To say we’re excited is an understatement,” he said. “The response from the fans has been unbelievable. We just want them to hear the rest of this record. Between ‘Sucker’ and ‘Cool’, there’s a good idea of what the album has in store, but there’s a lot of depth in this album, and it’s my favorite body of work I’ve ever worked on.”
Joe Jonas said that their father, Kevin, Sr., has also been eager to hear new music. “Our dad is someone who we really, really love playing new music for, and his excitement gets us going,” he shared. “He’s our biggest fan but also the biggest supporter, and he knows more about what’s going on online, and he watches everything.”
Nick explained to Paper Magazine that the group needed some time alone before they got back together to record. “We lost touch with what we wanted to say, because we were trying so hard to say something different from what we said in the past, musically and creatively,” he said. “We understood that our level of success and fame had reached a point, where our musicianship and writing and performing abilities needed time to grow and catch up to it.”
