Jonas Brothers, Vines, Lines and Trying Times (album cover)

Given the bomb that was the Jonas Brothers' 3-D movie, it's understandable that the Disney dudes get a little nervous before they drop their new album.

"Paranoid," the first single from Lines, Vines and Trying Times, lands on airwaves on May 8 and kicks off what is sure to be an exhaustive campaign and concert tour leading up to the album's June 16 drop date.

The promo tour has already launched with the boys gracing the cover of the latest issue of Seventeen magazine. And no matter how they're feeling about their latest venture—anxious, excited, whatevs—they aren't afraid to share their lofty goals.

For example, in addition to making music, 19-year-old Joe Jonas wants to be one of the most sought-after actors as well as pen one of the best-selling books in history.

"I think Johnny Depp's work is really great—he always incorporates music into what he does," he says when asked to list his acting role model. "[I also want to] write a book one day, because I love to read. The Alchemist [by Paulo Coelho] is my favorite book of all time."

Even if Kevin, Nick and Joe are uncertain of what's ahead, their label thinks the album just might change the world or something, calling it "an incredible music journey" and "a veritable smorgasbord of pop and rock gems."

With promises like that, the next single will probably be called "Insomnia."
