The big reveal came during his appearance on Jake Shane’s Therapuss, where he shared details about his upcoming solo album.

During the chat, Joe revealed that “Work It Out” was initially meant for a Jonas Brothers album, but he had felt a stronger personal connection to the track.

“I was listening to it, and I was like, ‘Damn, I really like this song,’ and starting to feel like I don’t know why, but I want this song for myself — not just the Brothers — and I also feel like it’s not DNCE, which is another band I’m in,” Joe explained.

Determined to follow his instincts, Joe sought his brothers’ approval.

“I asked my brothers’ blessings, and I was like, hey, I wanna go work on — I don’t wanna call it solo, but I want to go do something on my own, and I don’t feel like it’s DNCE, and I need to go just express some stuff for myself. And they’re like, ‘Go for it.’ Nick booked a movie. Kevin was going to do another season of Claim To Fame, and so I had a window of time, and I locked myself away.”

The result of that locked-away period is a deeply personal album crafted in just two to three weeks. Joe collaborated with an impressive lineup of artists, including Alexander 23, Muna’s Josette Maskin, Jason Evigan, Tommy English, and Paris Carney. Reflecting on the experience, Joe described it as “the most personal music I’ve ever put out.”

Excited to share his new music, Joe took to Instagram, posting a video of a serene mountain and lake landscape.

“I’m both excited and emotional as I’m gearing up to release new music,” he wrote.

“I’m humbled and grateful to collaborate with some of my favorite musicians and creators. I hope you find as much happiness and peace as I do when you listen to these songs.”

Hints of Joe’s return to his solo musical endeavors first appeared in March when he posted a clip with the caption, “The way I would’ve bodied this trend if I weren’t in the studio working on something new.”

A day later, he teased a 13-second video of his collaborators playing guitar in the recording studio.

Joe’s solo journey is a major departure from his work with the Jonas Brothers and DNCE.

The journey begins with “Work It Out,” co-written with Blush and Evigan. Joe gave fans a taste of the song’s inspiring chorus on Therapuss, singing, “Get up, get up, get up, get up / What are you whining about? / No, nobody’s gonna save you now / No, nobody’s gonna pull you out / Brush your shoulders off.”

It’s been 13 years since he released his solo album, Fast Life, which featured the Chris Brown-penned “See No More”, which peaked at No. 92 on the Billboard Hot 100, and the LP peaked at No. 15 on the Billboard 200.

Though he hasn’t announced an exact release date for the album, Joe mentioned it would be out “later this year,” with more tracks set to drop before the full release.
