JoJo Returns To The Stage

Armed with new songs, JoJo gears up for a big comeback that includes her first full-fledged tour in years. As she says, she’ll be “performing in a city near you for the first time in a long time.”

The pop singer’s first new album since 2006 is due out next year via Atlantic Records, according to In the meantime, her “tringle” of new songs includes “Say Love,” “Save My Soul” and “When Love Hurts.”

JoJo talked to about the long delay between her sophomore album, The High Road, and the as-yet-untitled release.  

“I put out my first album at 13, had an amazing success with that. Second album at 15, great success with that too. And then I did some movies, and then I fell into some trouble with my record company, and I was in limbo for a long time and had to eventually sue to get free of that contract that looked impossible to get out of.

“But I had these amazing litigators who found a loophole. Now I’m on the other side of it, and I’m signed to a new label, and it feels amazing to be able to release official music after so long.”

Check out the official video for “When Love Hurts” below.  

JoJo’s fall excursion, “I Am JoJo Tour,” launches Nov. 2 in Minneapolis. She notes that this is her first chance to tour like she wants to because she was a minor when her previous albums were released.

“So now I’m really excited to work my a** off. … Performing is a joy, so it’s something I get to do, not something I have to do,” JoJo told
