Singer turned Scream Queens star (but still definitely a singer) Nick Jonas is prepping for musical evolution with his next untitled project. If you remember August’s “Levels,” he calls the track a good indicator of the type of sonic territory his new record will explore. “[The album will] go even a bit farther with some more soul and R&B sounds, even hip-hop influences in there. I’m really just digging deep,” he explained to EW. “We have not picked a date officially yet, but we have a sense … It’s going to be at some point early next year, so probably the end of February or early March” — meaning there’s a chance it won’t work as a Valentine’s Day present. Crime or blessing? You decide.
