If you can’t get enough of Nick Jonas’ new single “Chains,” have no fear, because the music video for the track is coming soon. MTV will be premiering it this Wednesday, July 30 at 6 a.m. ET on MTV, MTV Hits, mtvU, and MTV.com (insert freak out here: ______.)
I know what you’re thinking, but this is not a test. I repeat: This is not a test. Come next week, you’ll be able to watch “Chains” in its entirety. And if you’re not sure what to do with yourself between now and then, we’ve got a sneak peek to tide you over in the meantime.
But wait, it doesn’t stop there. We’ll have four more teases on Monday and Tuesday, so make sure to check back with us then. Because according to Nick — yeah, I spoke to him earlier this week — the vid is unlike anything you’ve seen from him before.
“There is a loose storyline. The thing that I wanted to protect is that all of my videos in the past have had a story and a narrative and the story lines have been pretty complex,” he explained. “I wanted this one to just be like an art piece, like a trailer to a cinematic movie and really have the tone of the song connected to the visual because it is dark and edgy and I think this video really captures that, it’s a really beautiful visual.”
Nick co-directed the piece with Ryan Pallotta, who has worked with the likes of Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato, so you already know it’s going to be amazing. Plus, Dylan Penn is in it too, so it’s also guaranteed to be hot.
“It’s basically a surreal world that we’ve created where the heart and emotion and heart of the song are tied into a really beautiful visual,” he said. “I think really connects and I’m really excited for people to see it because it’s a really strong look and a real progression for me.”
