Joe Jonas Wants to Re-Record Debut Album: ‘Just Like Taylor Swift Did’

The True Meaning Of Life

By Pat A. FlemingPublished: July 2017

The Years have passed by,
In the blink of an eye,
Moments of sadness,
And joy have flown by.

People I loved,
Have come and have gone,
But the world never stopped,
And we all carried on.

Life wasn't easy,
And the struggles were there,
Filled with times that it mattered,
Times I just didn't care.

I stood on my own,
And I still found my way,
Through some nights filled with tears,
And the dawn of new days.

And now with old age,
It's become very clear,
Things I once found important,
Were not why I was here.

And how many things,
That I managed to buy,
Were never what made me,
Feel better inside.

And the worries and fears,
That plagued me each day,
In the end of it all,
Would just fade away.

But how much I reached out,
To others when needed,
Would be the true measure,
Of how I succeeded.

And how much I shared,
Of my soul and my heart,
Would ultimately be,
What set me apart.

And what's really important,
Is my opinion of me,
And whether or not,
I'm the best I can be.

And how much more kindness,
And love I can show,
Before the Lord tells me,
It's my time to go.

Joe Jonas might soon be taking a page out of Taylor Swift’s playbook. Jonas, 31, has expressed interest in adding the Jonas Brothers’ debut album Its About Time, the same way Swift is doing with her own music catalog. “I think I would probably re-record our entire first album,” Jonas said to Buzzfeed when asked which song of the Jonas Brothers he would re-record. “Just do something like what Taylor did recently, which I thought was really clever.”

Joe along with brothers Nick Jonas, 28, and Kevin Jonas, 33, released their debut album It’s About Time in 2006. The trio of brothers released five albums together during their 10 year run as a band. The trio starred in the television series Jonas, on Disney Channel from 2009-2010. They also were in the Disney Channel Original Movies Camp Rock (2008) and Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (2010) before they disbanded in 2013. Joe Jonas later became the lead singer for DNCE, releasing their first album in 2016.


Swift, 31, who dated Joe briefly in 2008, dropped Fearless (Taylor’s Version) in April 2021, a re-recording of her second studio album that was originally released in 2008. The 11-time Grammy Award winner previously committed to re-recording her entire music catalog after Scooter Braun bought her former record label Big Machine Group and the masters for her first six albums with it. Braun has since sold the masters to a private equity firm, but continues to profit off of them.
