Nick Jonas – Close (ft. Tove Lo) [Video Premiere]
Pop heartthrob Nick Jonas premieres his hotly anticipated new single ‘Close’, the collaboration with Swedish songstress Tove Lo, along with its accompanying video, the first taste of his upcoming third album ‘Last Year Was Complicated’.
The first song you’re gonna hear tomorrow night is about how I literally can’t open up and be vulnerable with someone..

After an immensely successful breakthrough 2014/15 establishing himself as a solo star, Nick Jonas returns with the first single from his forthcoming third studio album. “Cause space is just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get too close” the pair sing on the intense collaboration ‘Close’ over Mattman & Robin’s serene, steel-drum-led production showcasing they are a musical match made in heaven. Their irrepressible chemistry is furthered in the accompanying, Tim Erem- directed, video where Jonas and Tove Lo put on a simplistic yet magnetic performance.
Nick Jonas recently stopped by the iHeartRadio headquarters in L.A. to promote the album’s lead single, “‘Close’ is about the inability to connect with somebody, get deep with them. I had a great time recording it. Got Tove Lo to jump on the song, actually, after the Jingle Bell tour, and ready for the world to hear. Hopefully they like it as much as I do,” Jonas said, “It’s great working with Tove. We had a great time shooting the video. It’s very intense. But [there’s] a lot of chemistry, and it’s a good vibe, and we had fun.” Watch the video for ‘Close’ below:
In addition, Jonas recently spoke of his upcoming album ‘Last Year Was Complicated’ on Twitter: “When I first started making it I thought I knew what it would be about… Then I had a breakup,” he tweeted “It then became very clear what this thing would be about… And that I would need to dig really deep….S–t is too real sometimes… Reliving some of these real life experiences through this music is hard…. But I know it’s important that I do it. I want to be an open book in my art”

It is set to be released on June 10, 2016, by Island Records and Safehouse Records. The album features collaborations with Tove Lo, Ty Dolla $ign, Big Sean and Daniella Mason.
