Jonas Brothers fans will be in for a big surprise when they get their hands on Joe Jonas‘ upcoming solo record.

“It’s not just a cheesy pop record,” Joe, 21, tells Entertainment Weekly (via Cambio) about his upcoming album. “The dance element is where my heart is.”

Joe then gave the reporter a sneak preview of a new song called “Not Right Now” which the writer described as sounding “absolutely nothing like the Jonas Brothers.” That new sound is intentional, says Jonas, who claims that he wants to appeal to JoBros fans who may have matured past their rock-pop sound.

“I put the responsibility on myself to try to grab their ears again,” Joe tells the magazine. Well, we certainly can’t wait to hear it!

Joe has been working on his solo album at Los Angeles’ Chalice Studios with frequent Britney Spears collaborator Danja, which might explain the club influence on Joe’s new tracks.
