Jonas Brothers reunite, debut first new music in six years
The Jonas Brothers are back.
The trio announced Thursday that they have officially reunited and will debut a new single, “Sucker,” at midnight EST on Friday. Released via Republic Records, the track is the band’s first new music in six years.
Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas announced the news with a teaser for “The Late Late Show with James Corden.” The video showed the group partaking in the popular “Carpool Karaoke” segment and singing along to a few bars of the new song.
“It’s nice to be able to finally tell somebody — we’ve kept this a secret now for seven or eight months,” said Nick in the clip. “This is basically our first performance back. We’ve gotta dust off the cobwebs.”
The Jonas Brothers will take over CBS’ “The Late Late Show” from Monday through March 7 on CBS with an exclusive interview on their reunion, as well as some sketches, games and the premiere performance of their new song.
“Sucker” is the band’s first new release since 2013’s LP “Live” and singles “First Time” and “Pom Poms.” The Jonas’ last studio album was 2009’s “Lines, Vines and Trying Times.”
The group split in October 2013, two days before a scheduled tour, due to what a spokesperson cited as a “deep rift in the band” and “big disagreement over their music direction.” Each member has since pursued solo careers, and Joe formed the group DNCE.
