Jonas Brothers' self-titled album will soon be available for European countries for Universal Music Group have struck a deal with the boys' U.S. label Disney Music Group's Hollywood Records to release it in Europe via Polydor Records. The album which is the second effort from the three-piece will be available there in June.

"This band is one of our key priorities for Europe," said Max Hole, executive VP, Universal Music Group (UMG) International in a statement, "and we are keen on creating the same phenomenon in the region that has taken hold in the U.S." UMG also own the right to "Jonas Brothers" distribution in Canada and Latin America.

In striking the deal, UMG have won over rival EMI Music that hoped to renegotiate its foreign distribution agreement with Disney, which runs out in about a year. "Someone within the old (EMI) management chose not to pick up the option. I don't know why they wouldn't," a source from EMI revealed.

Unlike in the U.S. version case, the first single pulled for the European version will be "S.O.S.". The single that has peaked at #17 on Billboard Hot 100 chart, will be released in Europe in late May, according to Billboard. The band have embarked on a Live Nation tour and will be featured as the opening act of Avril Lavigne's European tour later this May.
