Waffle House (song)


Waffle House (song)


"Waffle House" is a song by American group Jonas Brothers. It was released through Republic Records as the second single from their sixth studio album, The Album, on April 7, 2023. The three group members, Joe, Nick, and Kevin Jonas, wrote the song with producers Jon Bellion, Ido Zmishlany, Daniel Tashian, Pete Nappi, and TenRoc, alongside Johnny Simpson and Aldae.

Background

The Jonas Brothers commented on the song and explained what it means to them in one of their promotional posts about the song on social media:

"Waffle House" was born from a simple but powerful idea: When you sit down with the people that matter most, anything is possible. This song isn't about a restaurant, it's about coming together with the people you love and making your dreams come true.

The song was conceived when the Jonas Brothers were working with producer Jon Bellion, who served as one of the main producers of The Album in the same way that producer Ryan Tedder did for the group's previous album, Happiness Begins (2019).

Release and promotion

On January 27, 2023, the Jonas Brothers were interviewed by Variety, in which they revealed a few song titles from The Album, with "Waffle House" being one of them. After previewing various snippets of the song, they announced its release date and shared its cover art on March 24, 2023. The group performed the song alongside some other songs from The Album for the first time on their final show on Broadway at the Marquis Theater in Manhattan, New York on March 18, 2023.

Composition and lyrics

"Waffle House" is a pop song that is named after the restaurant of the same name, a place that the Jonas Brothers used to eat at after finishing performing at shows, where they built many memories. The song "jitters with a funky groove and harmonies intended for a gospel choir" as Nick and Joe sing in the chorus: "No, don't get stressed, it's gon' get figured out / Oh, deep conversations at the Waffle House / Headstrong father and a determined mother / Oh, that's why some nights, we try to kill each other / But you know it's always love".

Music video

The official music video for "Waffle House", directed by Anthony Mandler, was released during a YouTube live stream hosted by the Jonas Brothers on April 28, 2023. It premiered on their Vevo channel on YouTube at 3 p.m. EST the same day. The video was shot in London and features the three brothers performing dance moves along with numerous crowds whilst on their way to perform at the Royal Albert Hall, where they held a concert on April 14, 2023, to promote their new album.

Live performances

The brothers performed the song on the fifth night of their Broadway residency, on March 18, 2023, as part of the setlist for The Album. On April 8, 2023, they performed the song on Saturday Night Live, along with the song "Walls", as musical guests.
