Joe Jonas' New Band DNCE Releases First Single – Listen Now!
The new quartet surprise-released "Cake By the Ocean" on Monday
That was fast!
Just three days after announcing their new band, the Joe Jonas-fronted foursome DNCE surprise-dropped their debut single, “Cake By the Ocean” on Monday.
Between the groovy guitars and Jonas’ funky falsetto, the ’70s-tinged track is reminiscent of the 2013 Daft Punk-Pharrell collab “Get Lucky.”
“That song was a total breakthrough,” Jonas told Complex. “Once we came up with ‘Cake By the Ocean,’ everything was electric.”
As for the song’s interesting title? Jonas, 26, said it was inspired by a conversation between Swedish producers Mattman & Robin: The hitmakers, who produced Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself,” were talking about getting cake by the ocean – when really, they wanted a “sex on the beach” cocktail.
Jonas announced this new creative endeavor Friday, posting a 15-second clip teasing the band. DNCE is his latest career move since the Jonas Brothers officially split in 2013. He released a solo album, Fastlife, in 2011 and recently tried his hand as a deejay.
