The Jonas Brothers brought a new vibe to their recent hit, ‘Sucker’, by performing the song with classroom instruments on US TV’s The Tonight Show last night. Joined by The Roots and the show’s host, Jimmy Fallon, the trio grabbed a clapper (Nick), a triangle (Kevin) and a banana shaker (Joe) and you check out the footage below to see their live performance.
In the clip, Nick Jonas takes on vocal lead as Fallon snaps on a Casio keyboard and taps out the beat on a wood block. Some post-production effects come into play as the performance amps up, giving the segment a music video effect. Fallon and The Roots back up the Jonas Brothers on vocals as the chorus emerges.
‘Sucker’ also features on the Jonas Brothers’ new album, Happiness Begins, the band’s first release in a decade. Earlier this year Kevin Jonas revealed the album by writing on Instagram, “After seven years of not working together living life and finding ourselves in our own paths we came back to give you our journey in album form. I’m so excited for you to hear Happiness Begins out June 7th. I have to say out of all the albums we have done together I’m the most proud of this one. I wish I could hand it to you now but you will just have to wait a little bit longer.”
As uDiscover Music previously reported, the band will also release a memoir, Blood, on 122 November 12 via Feiwel and Friends, an imprint of the publishing house Macmillan. The book was co-written by the band members alongside Neil Strauss and will chronicle Jonas Brothers’ swift rise from Disney idols to genuine pop stars, as well as their break-up in 2013.
“We’re three brothers from New Jersey, and we were not supposed to be successful,” Joe Jonas said in a statement. “From record labels dropping us to our dad losing his job over us, this shouldn’t have happened or lasted as long as it did. Yet here we are, more excited than ever, and we’re so grateful and ready to tell the full story of the journey we’ve had as individuals, as artists, and as family.”
