Joe Jonas has been working hard on his highly anticipated solo debut and we caught up with the Jo Bro at his photo shoot for the cover of Details magazine, chatting about his new endeavors.
"This is a major deal for me - to be able to accomplish something like this," Joe said of his solo photo shoot. "Doing it on my own is just, I think, a new chapter."
The singer has had to adapt to standing alone in the spotlight, but he seems to be adjusting well.
"I don't feel pressure, but I would say that I almost put a personal responsibility on myself," said Joe. "Those fans that say have moved on, gotten a little bit older and were introduced to new artists, I feel like I want to be able to catch their ears again."
The new album doesn't have a release date established but Joe is expecting it to drop somewhere around "late summer [or] early fall."
Although Joe is working independently of his brothers, that doesn't mean his will be the only voice heard on his upcoming album. Joe listed Kanye West, Drake and Nicki Minaj as artists that he would like to join forces with.
"There's a couple collaborations that I have opportunities for right now," said Jonas. "I don't want to jinx them, so I don't want to say too much."
Joe's advice to young artists - above all, have fun. "Anybody that I ever met that has been in the business that I really look up to, Paul McCartney to Bono, they've always looked at me and said, 'Listen, like, enjoy yourself. Have a good time. Stop. Realize the kind of moments you're in.'"
Joe Jonas' solo cover in Details goes on stands March 29.
