Today, GRAMMY® Award-nominated powerhouse trio Jonas Brothers return with their anxiously-awaited new single “Wings,” out now via Republic Records. “Wings” launches a new era for the band and is the first single from their sixth full-length record—and one of the most anticipated releases of the year—The Album, out May 12th.
The new song is released alongside the official music video featuring actress and self-proclaimed Jonas Brothers fan Haley Lu Richardson [White Lotus]. Shot in Las Vegas and directed by Josh Rimmey and Zach Williams, the feel-good video includes an impromptu hotel room dance party and surprise cameo by the Jonas Brothers themselves.
Kicking off another chapter, The Album marks Jonas Brothers’ first body of work since 2019’s Platinum-Certified Happiness Begins, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the GRAMMY® Award-nominated, 5x-Platinum, Billboard Hot 100 #1 smash hit “Sucker.”
Executive produced by sonic visionary artist Jon Bellion [Justin Bieber, Maroon 5, Halsey], “Wings” revs up with shimmering keys, as it embraces late 70’s pop with thick bass, hummable synth runs, and heavenly harmonies. Wrapped up with lush guitar, a head-nodding beat, and no shortage of fiery falsetto, it culminates on the instantly chantable chorus “You are the wings I need to fly away.” The band began teasing the song on socials last month to online chatter and debuted it in full for the very first time last weekend at their “Jonas Brothers: Live in Las Vegas” residency.
The Jonas Brothers said, “‘Wings’ is the perfect start to this new chapter for us. Working with Jon pushed us to explore our artistry in a way we never have before. The song is a great first taste of that creative exploration and what’s to come with THE ALBUM.”
Jon Bellion chimed in, saying, “We wanted to wipe the palette clean and demolish every expectation and box the brothers have ever been put into out the gate. We pushed ourselves to launch this thing musically into space while grounding it in a sort of Americana / Laurel Canyon nostalgia. There was a time when structure and composition mattered not only loops and vibes, and we dove into that mind frame. We went so deep into the spirit and energy of the late 70’s, the mustaches and long hair method acting approach started to just become our actual reality. The brothers have a God given ability and talent that deserves this level of record making at this point, and I just wanted to honour how special they are with this music.”
Jonas Brothers notably wrote and recorded The Album with Bellion at the helm. Together, they unlocked the next level for the band, embracing formative influences and igniting their sound from every angle. They delivered an unpredictable, undeniable, and unstoppable record uplifted by their inimitable chemistry and endless creativity.
This is The Album. This is Jonas Brothers in 2023.
