Joe Jonas is ready to make his solo comeback.

The 34-year-old Jonas Brothers star took to Instagram on Wednesday, July 10th to announce the release of his new single, “Work It Out”, which is set to drop on July 19th.

“I’m both excited and emotional as I’m gearing up to release new music,” Jonas wrote, sharing a serene video of a mountain and lake landscape. “I’m humbled and grateful to collaborate with some of my favourite musicians and creators. I hope you find as much happiness and peace as I do when you listen to these songs.”

Hints about his new solo music first appeared in March when Jonas posted a clip with the caption, “The way I would’ve bodied this trend if I weren’t in the studio working on something new.” A day later, he shared a 13-second video of his collaborators playing guitar in the studio.

During his appearance on Jake Shane’s Therapuss, Jonas revealed that “Work It Out” was initially meant for a Jonas Brothers album but felt a stronger personal connection to the track. Determined to follow his instincts, Jonas sought his brothers’ blessings to pursue the song as a solo project.

“I asked my brothers’ blessings, and I was like, ‘Hey, I wanna go work on — I don’t wanna call it solo, but I want to go do something on my own, and I don’t feel like it’s DNCE, and I need to go just express some stuff for myself.’ And they’re like, ‘Go for it,’” Jonas explained.

“Nick booked a movie. Kevin was going to do another season of Claim To Fame, and so I had a window of time, and I locked myself away.”

In a short span of two to three weeks, Jonas created what he describes as his most personal music yet, collaborating with an impressive lineup of artists including Alexander 23, Muna’s Josette Maskin, Jason Evigan, Tommy English, and Paris Carney.

The single “Work It Out”, co-written with Blush and Evigan, features the chorus: “Get up, get up, get up, get up / What are you whining about? / No, nobody’s gonna save you now / No, nobody’s gonna pull you out / Brush your shoulders off.”

This marks Jonas’s first solo release since his 2011 album, Fast Life, which featured the Chris Brown-penned “See No More.”

Although an exact release date for the upcoming album is yet to be announced, Jonas mentioned it would be out “later this year”, and he will “probably release a few more songs before the album comes out.”
