Joe Jonas is no longer the tween idol that everyone remembers him as. He’s 21 years old with a new solo album and he’s been hitting the gym a lot lately. The first single will be released next month.

Joe covers the April issue of Details magazine, and inside he talks about how he’s changed. “I’m growing up, the fans are growing up,” Joe says. “I’ve gone through a lot of stuff in my life so far. There are stories I haven’t really been able to tell. When you’re writing with three people, you wind up with a sound that might be—not average—but, you know, expected.”

The Jonas Brother talked to MTV News about how his brothers feel about him branching out on his own.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

“They’ve been wanting this for me for a long time,” said Joe, whose younger brother Nick made an album independent of his brothers called Who I Am in 2010 with his group Nick Jonas & the Administration.

Joe’s new music will be edgier than what you’d expect from him, and he wants his fans to just want to get up and dance and have a good time when they hear it.

“I think [Danja and I] both have been able to collaborate on something that really works for me and find me and not try to mold into something that’s not being able to just be myself in my music, and kind of tell stories and be honest,” said Joe, who later expressed that he also wanted to make songs that people could dance to and “have a good time.”
