Nick Jonas has said that his brother is his inspiration in order to work on his music.

Jonas, who starred in a West End production of Les Miserable last year, is keen to get back to his pop roots and produce for other artists.

"I've been in the studio a lot lately," he told MTV. "Basically writing and producing for other people. It's not for me or my brothers right now. Joe is doing a solo record and that's taking up a lot of his time and opened up my ear a lot."

"Creating music is probably my favourite part of this whole thing, along with the touring," the 'Camp Rock' star added. "When I come in, I go with whatever feels right - a lot of R&B and pop leaning stuff and infusing those sounds into pop music because there's no box. I can experiment. I'm really excited about the music."
