And when it comes to the feeling of being “completely disconnected from the world,” Spaceman as a whole provides a silver lining for the days when face masks, excessive screen time and social distancing are behind us.
“So ‘Spaceman’ came into my mind because I was thinking, ‘What’s the one thing that all of us have felt during this time?’ It’s just completely disconnected from the world,” he explained to Lowe. “We’ve gotten so accustomed to looking at a screen instead of human interaction, and I think the thing that keeps us all encouraged and hopeful is just the idea of knowing that there will be a tomorrow when this isn’t our reality, and I think the body of work as a whole tracks that.”
Spaceman will arrive on March 12 via Island Records, and fans can pre-order it here. The 11-song album is his first solo album in nearly seven years since his 2014 sophomore eponymous album, which reached No. 6 on the Billboard 200.
The “Spaceman” singer’s first stop this weekend on his latest expedition will be Studio 8H in New York, where he’ll be pulling double duty as the host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. He teased, “This is gonna be fun” after the official SNL Twitter account posted a behind-the-scenes shot of him masked up during a table read. This marks Jonas’ first time hosting and second time performing on the late-night sketch comedy series. Catch him live this Saturday, Feb. 27, at 11:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
