Joe Jonas' shocking solo album
Joe Jonas hopes his solo album will "shock" people.
The Jonas Brothers singer is preparing for the release of 'Fast Life' - his debut solo LP which has been described as "club-geared" - and thinks fans who are expecting "bubblegum pop" will be disappointed.
He said: "I kind of like to shock people sometimes, because I feel like - I feel they have expectations of what I'm supposed to sound like. I figure, just pop music. Just very standard pop music.
"I'm going from Disney to a more mature record, and having that experience, I think a lot of people might think, 'OK, this record might be a little bit bubble-gum pop.' "
Joe also admitted than when he first started making the album, he was planning an entirely different sound for the record.
He added in an interview with The Edmonton Journal: "At the beginning of last year, I was working on a project with a totally different sound to it.
"It was a very Michael Buble-esque record, and as the time progressed, I just started writing on my own and realized I could go on a route that was the kind of music I'd been listening to, which was a lot of stuff that DJs are doing these days, or some of my favourite artists - kind of that urban dance music."Posted on 21 Jul 2011 06:30 to category : Band / Celebrity News
