-The Jonas Brothers recently talked to MTV.com about their new video for “Love Bug” and the inspiration for the song. The video is set to release on October 15! Check it out below and don’t forget to check out the new photoshoot pics of the guys HERE and HERE.
It’s only a matter of time before the guys who left you “Burnin’ Up” will debut the video for their latest single, “Lovebug.” The song isn’t new to Jonas Brothers fans, who have seen them sing it everywhere from the VMAs to “Dancing With the Stars.” But MTV News got all the latest info about the song and its video, which is a period-piece love story inspired by “The Notebook.”
“We have a dream of what it can be,” Kevin Jonas said of the clip. “It’s about capturing that idea. We want to make sure it’s always right.”
The guys wrote the song while on the road with their friend and fellow Disney superstar, Miley Cyrus. “We wrote it while on the Christmas break of the ‘Hannah Montana’ tour. So we were in the hotel room and sat down that night and wrote it in about 15 or 20 minutes,” Nick explained.
The track — like a lot of the JoBros’ songs — is about puppy love, but this time the brothers are going acoustic. They also found inspiration from an unlikely source — the soundtrack to a movie about a sassy, pregnant teenage girl.
“The vision for the song actually came from some different inspirations,” Nick added. “But ‘Juno’ was one of our favorite movies at the time, and the soundtrack is always kind of odd, so we decided to put those elements in the song, and it came very nicely.”
That soundtrack might have helped shape the song, but Nick also had another major songwriting influence: “I think there are a lot of things we draw from, but that song in particular is a Beatles influence.”
Although no names were mentioned when asked just who the song might be about, Joe did say that the lyrics’ meaning is really open to the listener’s interpretation. “It can mean anything,” he said. “But for us, it’s throwing any past inhibitions to the wind.”
“Really, just falling in love with somebody,” Nick added. “And [how] if they break your heart — or however it ends — you think, ‘That’s it forever,’ until the lovebug gets you [again].”
The group hopes to release the Philip Andelman-directed video by October 15.
