The third effort from Jonas Brothers may sound relatively not far from their second self-titled album, but member Nick Jonas has hinted that there definitely are influences from Elvis Costello and The Beatles.
They will also showcase four of their new materials during the headlining tour that starts January 31 in Tucson, Ariz. The tracks are 'Don't Take My Heart and Put it on the Shelf', 'Burning Up', 'Pushing Me Away' and the one that Nick wrote about his struggle with diabetes, 'A Little Bit Longer'.
To Billboard.com, the youngest of the three piece explained, "We have some more Elvis Costello-type influences on it. There's a song called 'Be Be Good' which is definitely an Animals, Rascals type of influence and obviously, of course, the Beatles."
Nick also emphasized further on the weight of their lyrics that have gone a little bit deeper "as far as who we are as people and our personal lives, with our dating and all that, things we've gone through in the past year."
The group have started recording some of the songs while serving as the supporting act in Miley Cyrus' Best of Both World tour and actually recorded them while the bus was rolling. The not-yet-titled album will see the production from John Fields once again and be dropped in stores on July 8.
