Nick Jonas Performs Two New Songs “Spaceman” & “This Is Heaven” on Saturday Night Live
- American singer-songwriter Nick Jonas appeared on Saturday Night Live to perform two new songs “Spaceman” and “This Is Heaven” on February 27, 2021.
He previously appeared on the sketch show as a musical guest in 2016.
Both songs are included on his upcoming third studio album “Spaceman”, which is set to be released on March 12, 2021.
The album title track “Spaceman” was released on February 26th. “This Is Heaven” was premiered and will be released on March 4th as the second single off of the album.
“I think the key for me was trying to find a way to give this idea a persona, give it a name. So 'Spaceman' came into my mind because I was thinking, 'What's the one thing that all of us have felt during this time?' It's just completely disconnected from the world,” Nick Jonas told Zane Lowe of Apple Music about the album. “We've gotten so accustomed to looking at a screen instead of human interaction, and I think the thing that keeps us all encouraged and hopeful is just the idea of knowing that there will be a tomorrow when this isn't our reality, and I think the body of work as a whole tracks that”.
The new songs of the album are dedicated to his wife, Priyanka Chopra Jonas.
“She loves it. Most of the songs are pretty much just love letters, which when I can't articulate the way I feel with my words with no music, I go to the studio,” he said. “And I'm grateful to have that because it makes her happy, and that's most important. I was away from my wife for a few months while she was filming a movie and that's when I started making the record. And then the reconnection, understanding there is hope on the other side. I feel like the album is inherently hopeful and I want people to feel that when they listen to it.”
