But how does Nick's new song stack up to his history with the Jo Bros as well as his songs with the Administration? Well, we'd say he's going for a more adult, R&B sound...and we really like it.
Nick told MTV about the meaning behind "Chains," explaining, "It's a song that embodies the feeling of being trapped in a love that is hopeless. I think it's a great new sound for me and a really good taste tester for this project."
He added, "The story behind 'Chains' is basically that feeling that all people can relate to, it's being trapped. For me specifically in this song, I connected to love and trust and for some people they have said it's broader for them, it's more than love, it can be about anything that entangles you in your life and doesn't let you do what you need to do to feel free."
Nick teased just a bit of his upcoming new album, noting, "I think this is a good fit and I fell in love with the song and I really feel like it has become a staple for this album."
Pal Demi Lovato is a fan, as she took to Twitter to share her congrats and further tease fans that there are even more great songs to come:
