Here are some excerpts from the interview with Nick.

On writing the new song:

“The new track was written last year while I was on tour, which is one of my favourite times to write, when I’m constantly in front of new audiences and being inspired on a nightly basis. It was a rainy day in Maine, so I went on the studio bus and I started this track and I really liked the way it sounded. Within five hours from the time I started the beat to the time I eventually laid my vocals in with the lyrics that we’d written, it was pretty much done.”

On making music that’s more personal:

“For a while I used songwriting as a way to process my emotions, and in my head that always needed to be heavy, or the songs needed to have a darkness to them. Whereas now I am open to singing about positive things, to be able to sing with a smile on my face is a really nice feeling.”

On working with a new team on the track:

“I think like anything, with some new energy in the room, there’s an unpredictability about it that’s really exciting and scary at the same time. If you’re willing to embrace it, that sort of uneasy energy can be pretty amazing. That’s how I chose to see it, and I’ve come out with some stuff that I’m really excited about, cutting a new direction which is exhilarating.”

On releasing this song now, and the shifting way that music is released:

“Something I’m fully aware of is that I’m scatterbrained as fuck, I’m all over the place [laughs]. But I think it works to my advantage at times… it lets me really be able to do everything. I don’t want to be pigeonholed. Being able to put this song out [now], if that’s the statement I want to make at this moment, but then also feeling free to continue to be inspired by something completely different… I feel like before there was a real need for everything to be completely cohesive and be a singular thought. So I view it as an opportunity, it’s been one of the most freeing things for me creatively.”

On working on a rich mix of projects from independent film, to blockbusters, to music:

“I would LOVE to say it’s part of some big plan and that I was masterminding it, but that’s not the reality [laughs]. On the acting side of things I’ve had to work really hard the last couple of years to prove that it is a skill set that I have and also that I’m committed to the work. I think there can be that fear that, because I’m doing music and other projects, my focus will be elsewhere. But once I dive in on an acting project, I really make that the focus.”

Nick Jonas arrived in comfy attire — a hoodie and sneakers — at Bloomingdale’s on 59th Street on Saturday afternoon. He had just taken the red-eye from Los Angeles to make it in time for the retail debut of his Altec Lansing headphone collaboration, and was relying on the proven power of iced coffee to help him shake off the grogginess.

As hundreds of fans gathered in the women’s contemporary section to snag a pair of headphones and Jonas’ signature, the singer took a few minutes to speak about the collaboration, his love for classic style and his recent “aha moment.”

WWD: How was the Met Gala?
Nick Jonas: The Met was amazing. It’s actually one of my favorite events. That and the Golden Globes are up there for the most fun, mostly because people are drinking and having a good time. It breaks the ice. With that one, too, there’s no pressure. There’s no awards or anything like that, so it’s a fun night for everybody.

WWD: Tell me about your design collaboration with Altec Lansing.
N.J.: I’ve always been a visual person when it comes to my music. I always have to see it first. When I first heard about Altec and the possibility of working with them, I was over the moon. Once I got the product in my hands and actually felt it and listened to it, I saw there was real quality, which, as a musician, is the number-one thing you want. The idea of being able to design it and bring my own element of what I think is classic style and classic aesthetic, combined with something bold and chic and sexy, it’s really fun.

WWD: You previously did a sneaker collaboration with Creative Recreation. Is fashion design something you want to do more of?
N.J.: I’m really into fashion. Over the last couple of years, I’ve met some incredibly talented people, both in the design space but also on the creative front. The creative direction side of things, in addition to whatever design elements I can bring to the table, is the thing that I enjoy the most. I’m also willing to say I have a lot to learn. I want to continue to put myself in positions to grow and find new ways to be creative.

WWD: How would you describe your current style?
N.J.: There’s a real classic approach to it. I don’t like to go too far outside the box. I’m comfortable in both men’s tailoring and well-made garments, but also streetwear and mixing it up with some fun, youthful looks. I think that balance is so important and continuing to surprise people with what you’re wearing. In a lot of areas in my life — creatively and all that — I’m trying to swerve a little bit and do something different. That will be coming soon.

WWD: Stylistically?
N.J.: Stylistically, but also musically and creatively. As a whole, I’ve had an aha moment recently.

WWD: What do you mean by aha moment?
N.J.: I was struggling to find what the next thing would be on the music front and what I wanted to say, how I wanted to say it, the style of the music, the way it sounded. But some things clicked with some collaborators that I’ve been working with, and it’s feeling like there’s real clarity now for the vision of the next step. But that goes for everything. With a creative life, you have to be willing to adjust at any point in time and have everything fall into that as well.
