Nick Jonas shows off a different side of himself in the official music video for his brand-new song “Chains“! The track serves as the lead single off his upcoming solo debut album, which is due out later this year via Island Records. The clip sees the 21-year-old singer being dragged slowly across a church floor, falling from the sky, and getting tied up in a chair all to represent the girl (played by Dylan Penn) toying with his heart. “It’s definitely a progression for me,” Nick told MTV News. “I really wanted to push myself, work with some people that would help me grow and, you know, I kind of came to a place where I said, look, I’ve already had a full career at the age of 21-years-old and I get to start over and this is really cool and really approach it as a new artist.”
Nick continued, “Just some things that are going on in my life, you know, I’m talking about love, I’m talking about heartbreak, a big theme for me in this is trust, and fear. The story behind ‘Chains’ is basically that feeling that all people can relate to, its being trapped. For me specifically in this song, I connected to love and trust and for some people they have said its broader for them, its 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.”
