The Jonas Brothers took a bit of a break from each other to pursue individual projects, but now that they’re coming together again to make another album, the group of brothers has announced they’re parting ways with their label.
The group released three successful records under their Hollywood Records label, selling 17 million copies of their records internationally.
“This was a decision that we made as a group,” Nick Jonas told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.
“Naturally, as with any partnership, when you do part ways, there is emotion tied to it. We've been blessed to have a lot of success with Hollywood and with Disney, but speaking on behalf of my brothers and our team, we're all looking forward to this next chapter. We're ready for that next step as a group, and being able to take our work with us was so important.”
The group also bought the rights back to publishing, merchandise and master recordings.
The label was just as good-natured about their parting ways in a statement to THR. “Hollywood Records and Jonas Brothers have amicably ended an amazingly successful partnership after six years,” said the label. “We couldn’t have asked for better partners or nicer people to work with. We wish Nick, Kevin, and Joe all the best in their future endeavors.”
MTV News reports that the Jonas Brothers’ manager, Johnny Wright, confirmed that they currently aren’t attached to a label.
For the next deal they sign, they will be seeking out more control. "This will allow them to chart their own destiny," said Wright.
