Lines, Vines, and Trying Times

New albums from big-name acts are looming on the horizon, which can only mean one thing: Summer is upon us.

The upcoming months are second only to the Christmas season in terms of their sales impact, and that means new albums are on deck from what are traditionally the biggest sellers in pop music. New recordings by Bruce Springsteen, Neil Young and U2 haven’t met expectations thus far . Can anyone resuscitate a year defined by its underwhelming chart performance? A few have a legitimate shot, no doubt. Throw in rumoured comebacks from Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston later in the year, and you’ve got a rolling, tumbling batch of recorded music lying in wait - not to mention one heck of an iPod beach party playlist waiting to be made…

5. Jonas Brothers, Lines, Vines and Trying Times. Due: June 16. Disney dynamos the JoBros are shooting for world domination with their fourth album, Lines, Vines and Trying Times. There’s also a TV series in production, so expect to hear a lot of the band throughout the year. Critics were somewhat kind to the band’s previous release, 2008’s A Little Bit Longer, but the band relies less on its pop-rock roots here, favouring instead brassy funk and Neil Diamond.

The places that Neek and I found out about the Paranoid single is claiming that World War III is to be the 2nd single off of Lines, Vines, and Trying Times. It’s set to release by ringback tone in mid June.
According to an El Paso official twitter and various sources, the Jonas Brothers (more like just Nick) was filming a scene for the Paranoid music video!
