Promoting his new album Last Year Was Complicated, Jonas talks about the writing process. The 23-year-old singer shares, “I started making this record the week my last album came out in 2014, but then last summer I went through a breakup that changed everything.” Jonas recalls, “I remember my manager looked at me and said, ‘Alright, you really have to dig deep, it’s important that you get honest, vulnerable, and lay out your stories in the best way you can,’ so I did.”

Continuing to discuss the significance of the album, Jonas explains, “The record really became about this year of my life, and that’s not limited to any one event or anything specifically that happened, but, you know, everything. There are some tough moments and there are some great ones.”
