Jonas Brothers Set to Release 'A Little Bit Longer' August 12
Follow Up to Platinum Selling Jonas Brothers CD and Meteoric Rise to Pop Culture Phenomenon
Major summer ramp up with 'Camp Rock' premier June 20 and sold out headline 'Burning Up' tour kicking off July 4
Jonas Brothers announced today their highly anticipated album will be titled 'A Little Bit Longer' and will hit stores August 12. The CD is a follow up to the platinum selling Jonas Brothers CD which debuted at # 5 on Billboard's Top 200 last August on Disney's Hollywood Records. Jonas Brothers have spent the last year and a half working tirelessly, creating a tsunami-sized swell that prompted Oprah Winfrey to compare the mania of the Jonas Brothers to that of the Beatles (April 24, 2008 episode).
The first single from 'A Little Bit Longer' will be "Burning Up," and the video will be an action packed James Bond-esque adventure. "Burning Up" is also the name of Jonas Brothers' upcoming headline arena tour that kicks off July 4 in Toronto with special guest Demi Lovato. Most of the dates for the "Burning Up" tour sold out in record time, including two shows at the venerable Madison Square Garden in New York.
Jonas Brothers recorded much of 'A Little Bit Longer' while on tour last fall in a specially outfitted Gibson tour bus. John Fields returns as executive producer of their new CD. Jonas Brothers previewed three new tracks from 'A Little Bit Longer' on their recently wrapped "When You Look Me In The Eyes" tour, including "Burning Up," "Little Bit Longer" and "Pushing Me Away." "Burning Up" is a funky, rhythmic dance and guitar driven number, while "Little Bit Longer" is a poignant account of Nick Jonas' life as a diabetic, and "Pushing Me Away" is pure Jonas-emo. The band's songwriting on the new album shows their musical growth and depth like never before.
Leading up to the release of the new CD, Jonas Brothers have an incredibly busy summer ahead. Following their Disney Channel reality series "Jonas Brothers, Living the Dream," and their made for Disney Channel movie "Camp Rock" (co-starring summer tour special guest Demi Lovato), Jonas Brothers will do their first tour of Europe late May through June, and embark on the "Burning Up" tour July 4, all before releasing 'A Little Bit Longer' August 12.
