Nick Jonas made one of 2014’s most promising pop albums, and his next one is shaping up to be even more exciting. As Idolator points out, Jonas tweeted that he’s working with Purity Ring’s Corin Roddick on music for his next album. This is good news! (It’s also kind of funny because Jonas used to be known for wearing a purity ring, but I digress.)
As anyone who’s heard Purity Ring’s work with Danny Brown can attest — and even more so the band’s own wildly underrated crossover bid Another Eternity — Roddick is one of the brightest minds in music production right now. His beats have the agility to skitter and the power to crush, like monuments on the verge of collapse. So hearing what he does with a singer with the full support of the pop radio machine should be extremely intriguing. To get your imagination up and running, I’ve included Jonas’ breakout hit “Jealous” and Purity Ring’s “Heartsigh” after the tweet.
Amazing session tonight with Corin from one of my favorite groups @PURITY_RING tonight. Can't wait for you all to hear this new music.
