Jonas Brothers Doing ‘Own Thing’ In Studio

Joe Jonas tells MTV News about recording the next JoBros album without a label: 'We can do whatever we want.'

The Jonas Brothers are opening a new chapter. After leaving their longtime home of Hollywood Records earlier this year, the guys are setting out to make music on their own terms. Currently knee-deep in recording sessions for their next album , Joe Jonas says they are cooking and the musical recipe is all their own.

“It’s an exciting chapter for us. It’s almost as if starting over,” he explained to MTV News. “For us, we’ve been in this position once before, years ago, and then great things happened really fast for us.

“So now, as we’re all adults and it’s been like two years since we worked together — we’ve all done individual projects, solo projects, movie projects — now it’s kind of like, ‘We’re here together. Let’s create,’ ” he added, teasing that parts of the recording process might end up on big bro Kevin’s E! reality show, “Married to Jonas.”

“It’s really exciting. So, we’ve been in the studio in Nick’s apartment for two months now, and we finally found [it] ’cause we’ve been trying different sounds and different things,” he continued. “And it’s great because we can do whatever we want. There’s nobody else in there. We can kind of do our own thing, and it’s really exciting to see the fans that have been around for so many years still excited and also the fans that we’ve been able to bring, the new fans. There’s all these different inspirations for us.”

While the guys are currently going at it alone, they have discussed adding a few more cooks to the kitchen. “We’ve been producing and writing by ourselves,” he said. “We want to bring in other songwriters and producers and people we’ve never worked with before,” he added, noting that he’d love to work with Bruno Mars. “I think it’d be cool to work with him. He’s an incredible artist.”
