Joe Jonas on Love Slayer: Not an Ode to Taylor Swift!

by at .

Joe Jonas is really trying to kickstart his solo career. The singer has a new album coming out on October 11 and will soon hit the road on tour.

First, though, he has to clear up a misconception about "Love Slayer," one of the tracks on his upcoming CD: it's NOT about ex-girlfriend Taylor Swift, people.

"When I write songs I don’t say who they are about because I don’t want the audience to relate to what was going on with me when I wrote it," Joe tells UK's Metro. "You say one thing and it becomes a big rumor."

Jonas famously dumped Swift in 2008 with a 25-second phone call, a move she publicly bashed him for on a talk show appearance with Ellen DeGeneres. She's also open to penning lyrics about ex-boyfriends, remarking in 2009 to Self:

"If you don't want me to write bad songs about you, then don't do bad things."

As for what we can expect from Joe's album, he told the British publication:

"A lot of the songs speak about going through the good and bad of relationships and everything I’ve been through for the past 18 months – the touring and the traveling. It’s everything from hip hop to a bit of dancey stuff: a lot of different styles."

But nothing about Taylor or another ex, Demi Lovato, he insists. Fans will likely be listening closely to see if this is the truth.
