Singer Joe Jonas graces the newest issue of #Legend, where he dishes on his band DNCE and their new music, and what he misses about the Jonas Brothers.
On DNCE’s EP Swaay:
“We started making music not knowing if there would be an EP or if there was going to be a full album, but we made a few songs and it started to sound like a strong body of work. We released Cake By the Ocean just to see what would happen. The reaction was so strong right away that we were like, ‘We need to give them more music, fast.’ So we released the EP. It’s great to release an EP because you can really find out what the audiences come here for and what they like, and that’s a big determinator of the ideas for the full-length album.”
“It’s been fun. The cool thing about touring with friends is that it makes everything so much easier. Sometimes it can get complicated if you don’t get along with the person but we get to do this with homies and I think it’s kind of rare. DNCE is a pretty fun band overall so we’re not tough to get along with.”
“It’s difficult to hang out with people in the music industry like that, I mean, we rarely get to spend much time together, but I’ve known her since she was really young, and we kind of watched each other grow up. It’s kind of cool to see that.”
On DNCE’s New Album:
“The new album will come out in autumn. We just pushed back the album because the songs have really been taking off more and more. It’s kind of a good problem to have. Typically, you can be impatient and get the music out there, but it’s great this way because more and more people are discovering DNCE and listening to the songs, and hopefully falling in love with the new music. The album will come out in October, probably.”
Three Words Describing The New Album:
“Electric, funky, fresh.”
What He Misses About the Jonas Brothers:
“Traveling with my brothers and being able to spend a lot of time with them was great, but we’re all focused on our individual careers and I think that time has passed. One day it will make sense to do something together again but, right now, we’re still focused on our individual careers and that’s what’s really important to us.”
What He Misses the Least about the Jo Bros:
“Well, we’re family. We definitely get on each other’s nerves, just like any other family. What else? That’s about it.”
