HOLD THE [SWATCH] PHONE! Jordan Knight has a new album out! The “Giving It To You” singer is truly "giving it to us" from a musical standpoint — he’s touring with fellow New Kids On The Block and the Backstreet Boys (NKOTBSB, for the uninvolved) beginning June 2nd (have you bought your tickets?!) AND has been flying solo on his latest side-hustle, album, his new album, Unfinished.It'll be out May 31 on iTunes and features the easy yet up-tempo dancey beat of The New Kids On The Block's newer albums while clearly influenced by Jordan's 1999 solo debut, "Give It To You."
Listen to Jordan's solo songs, and it's clear that Jordan's boy-bander-all-grown-up hotness and ability to create dance-pop is ALSO "Unfinished." We envision it's a lifelong work in progress, actually. "Let's Go Higher" directly references DJs and dancefloors -- a good indication that that's exactly where you'll hear his new songs. The overall flavor is grown-up NKOTB with shades of Enrique Iglesias. And even though Jordan's talking about things like "texting you right now" ("Like A Wave"), it's a more modern twist on NKOTB's chivalrous-yet-vulnerable tone that '80s fans (myself included) know and love. Jordan Girls will remember WHY we hightailed it to their concerts amongst screaming fans wearing 13 pieces of NKOTB paraphernalia/flair, including but not limited to a supersized button pin with Jordan Knight's face. We did it because we really FELT that he'd be loving us forever.
On "One More Night," a hip-hop inspired ballad, Knight teamed up with songwriter Nasri Atweh, who's worked with Justin Bieber and Chris Brown. "You have to let go and let the flow and the emotion take you instead of always following trends because if you think too much with your head it's not heartfelt," Jordan Knight told Billboard.com.
Unfinished is available now for pre-order via iTunes and Amazon. Listen to it now on Billboard.com.
