Jonas Brothers to release ‘Chasing Happiness’ Documentary

“Chasing Happiness”, a documentary about the newly reunited Jonas Brothers is set to premiere June 4 via Amazon Prime Video worldwide.

The film promises never-before-seen footage of Nick, Joe, and Kevin Jonas, starting with their early days of growing up in New Jersey in a family struggling to make ends meet, reports Variety.

It follows the trio to their heights of stardom — and the events surrounding their 2013 break-up. The Jonas Brothers broke up their band after cancelling their tour due to a “deep, creative rift” among the members.

“Chasing Happiness” also shows the brothers rebuilding their relationships as siblings and band mates, leading to their first new album since 2009.

In their heyday, the Jonas Brothers earned two No. 1 albums and sold out shows across three continents, selling over 17 million-plus albums with over 1 billion streams worldwide. The trio announced their reunion earlier this year with their hit single “Sucker”, which has topped 445 million global streams to date.

Last month, the group announced their first album since 2009, “Happiness Begins” — which will release on June 7. They have also announced details for their 40-city Happiness Begins Tour. 

Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke credited Nick’s wife and actress Priyanka Chopra behind the idea of making the documentary. 

“I love Priyanka and she introduced me to Nick Jonas. They sent me a video and we bought it right away and that’s how we came about it,” Salke told IANS when the project was announced.

Opening up about the idea behind the project, Salke said: “It is really about our instincts, ‘oh my God, our customer are going to love this’ and we sort of lean in and figure out the best strategy.”

“Heathers”and “Jawbreaker” vibes ooze from The Naked and Famous new video

Published

on

The Naked and Famous¬†are giving off a dark comedy vibe (think¬†Heathers¬†and¬†Jawbreaker) in a major way with their new music video for their latest song “Bury Us”.


Alisa Xayalith accidentally murders her boyfriend, leading herself to enlist bandmate Thom Powers to help cover up the evidence. Additional chaos ensues all amidst bright colors, perfectly matching the shimmering synth sound of the track.

“Bury Us” is a track off of the duo’s forthcoming album ‘Recover’ which is a full-throttle dosage of the 2010s-era synth pop sound they helped define (remember “Young Blood”?!) mixed with a powerful sentiment of survival, and the very human process of self-preservation — of saving, choosing and celebrating oneself in a world constantly trying to put us down.
