A fan of 'Tron Legacy', Joe said he also takes inspiration from Frankmusik and some other European DJs.
When Joe Jonas said in a previous interview that he's making dance track for his solo album, the 21-year-old singer actually refers to Daft Punk kind of music. The middle of Jonas Brothers spilled the beans when having a chat with MTV and producer Danja.
"I think for me the biggest influences are Daft Punk," Joe said. He additionally stated that he and Danja are fans of "Tron Legacy", "I think, for both of us, we are huge fans of the new 'Tron' movie." He decided to make it one of the references for the album after watching it at its premiere.
Joe also credited Euro-dance musicians like Frankmusik, "There's a guy, Frankmusik, out of London, a lot of electro DJs out in Europe are doing some cool stuff right now." Overall, he's currently just so into upbeat music, "I just listen to a bunch of stuff you dance to, kind of electro-based. A lot of stuff that's so amazing [that] you can create on the computer."
He shared more, "We've been able to collaborate on something that really works for me. And to find me and not try to mold it into something it's not, to try and be myself and my music and kind of tell stories and be honest and just have something ... when people hear it, hopefully they'll be able to dance to it and have a good time."
Although having been making music since he was a teenager, Joe admitted he was nervous when starting to work on the solo project. "I think there's a lot of emotions," he stated. "I wanted to have my brothers' support, and the fact they're both so excited for me and they've been wanting this for me for a long time [is great]."
