Joe Jonas Plans 'Sexier' Sound for Solo Debut

'Justin Timberlake vibe' promised for Joe's first disc, which is due in early 2011

September 28, 2010 12:29 PM ET

Joe Jonas is striking out on his own for an album with a "more dangerous sound" than that of the Jonas Brothers, a rep for Hollywood Records tells E! News. Joe "is working with various writers and producers on music," the rep said, adding that they are going for a "sexier, Justin Timberlake vibe." The album is expected out on in early 2011.

Behind the Jonas Brothers' World Tour

Joe's solo move doesn't come as a surprise: Earlier this year he told E! that he was writing songs, and given that Nick is the Jonas Brothers' primary songwriter, it was assumed the tracks were for Joe's own project. Joe's younger brother Nick Jonas released a disc with his side band, the Administration, earlier this year. Solo albums aside, the Brothers have pledged that they will not be breaking up anytime soon.

Song Stories

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
