Group reunions are always exciting, and the Jonas Brothers are no exception to this phenomenon. Ever since the release of the slick single “Sucker” in March, the trio have built up a solid amount of hype for their new album Happiness Begins, which drops today.
A mixture of reggae, country and pop-rock, Happiness Begins is a delightful blend of the classic Jonas Brothers sound and feel-good summer vibes. Their first studio album since 2009’s Lines, Vines and Trying Times, it features ’80s-influenced synth pop track “I Believe,” which is said to allude to Nick Jonas and his wife Priyanka Chopra’s fairytale romance, and closes with the aptly titled “Comeback.”
“We don’t want take ourselves too seriously. We really want to have as much fun as we hope [our fans] have. We want that to reflect through our music,” Nick explained in a press statement. “There is so much negativity in the world today, that I feel like if you have the opportunity to bottle up some happiness, that’s an honor and privilege. That’s what we want to do.”
