Remember that photo Demi Lovato posted on Instagram teasing “a KILLER duet”? How could you forget, right? Well, MTV News can confirm the unidentified thumb featured in that picture belongs to none other than Nick. And not only that, when I caught up with the former JoBro last week, he told me the pair have five other songs in the works. One of them, titled “Avalanche,” is being featured on his upcoming album.
“She and I recorded a song that, um, I think is beautiful. It’s not necessarily a love song. It’s so easy to do a duet that’s a love song because our relationship isn’t really that. But there is love there for a friend, you know, and it’s beautiful to just talk about,” he revealed. “Any kind of relationship can hit a point where if it’s not stable, it’s not secure then it’s like an avalanche crashing down and that’s what that song is about. Her voice is amazing on it and, um, it feels good. I’m excited for people to hear it.”
This isn’t the first mention of these two joining forces on new music. During our last sit-down with the “Really Don’t Care” singer, she mentioned the pair had talked about doing a side project and already know what they’d call themselves and everything.
While Nick wouldn’t give up the band name — “We have to say that together. It’s highly controversial,” he laughed. “No, it’s not, it’s not.” — he did say the collaboration is something both parties would seriously consider.
“The great thing about our relationship is that we’re both pretty much gung-ho to do anything creatively together at any point in time. So if she was like, ‘Hey, let’s go make that album,’ I’d be like, ‘All right, cool,’ because I’m confident that it’s going to be fun and we’re going to have a good time making it. And it’ll probably end up sounding cool,” Nick said.
He continued: “We always talked about doing, you know, some fun side project where we go to a house in Kentucky or something and set up a little studio and record, like, a Civil War style, you know, album. So there’s always going to be music for us together. And we’ve been singing together for so long that it kind of comes naturally.”
