With hype building about Nick Jonas‘ new soul-pop sound and imminent LP, it’s easy to forget that older brother Joe Jonas tried to make a similar transition to solo stardom in 2011 with (largely) electro-pop opus Fastlife. The album didn’t perform as well as he (or his fans) had hoped but there are still plenty of gems to be found among the Danja and Hit-Boy-produced tracks.
That makes the arrival of “Young & Restless” cause for celebration. Jonas Brothers internet scholars (ie. crazy fans) are in agreement that the song is an unused demo from the Fastlife sessions and I’m inclined to agree because of the production and subject matter. I’m pretty sure Joe’s new material would have a more somber tone. Anyway, it’s still well worth a listen. Check out “Young & Restless” after the jump.
