Kevin, Nick and Joe have confirmed speculation of their return: this afternoon they teased their new song with a Late Late Show With James Corden clip, and a look at their new single artwork. It seems the big track, Sucker, will be out this evening at midnight Eastern time, which is 5am in the UK.
What’s more, they’ve surprised fans by revealing that this has all been kept under wraps for months on end.
“It’s nice to finally be able to tell somebody,” Nick said told Corden.
“We’ve kept this a secret for almost seven, eight months.”
He quipped of Carpool Karaoke: “This is basically our first performance back.”

The boys then teased an exciting glimpse of the new song, which sounds loyal to their trademark pop-rock sound.
Earlier in the snippet, Corden is seen picking up Joe – before stopping to pick up newlywed Nick, and then Kevin.
As Corden twigs the significance of having all three brothers in the car, he says: “Is what I think is happening, is it happening?”
The brothers then look direct into the camera and say: “Yeah. We’re back”
Nick has perhaps had the biggest solo career of the group: his last record Last Year Was Complicated came out in 2016, after its predecessor – the self-titled Nick Jonas – sold over 300,000 copies in the US.
The Jonas Brothers released their last album – Lines, Vines and Trying Times – in 2009, reaching No1 in the US.
They also contributed heavily to the soundtrack album Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam in 2010 – reaching No3 in their homeland.
Sucker by the Jonas Brothers is out tomorrow.
