Album information

The title of the album, "A Little Bit Longer", comes from their song of the same name, which Nick Jonas wrote about his feelings with having type 1 diabetes.

On August 5, 2008, A Little Bit Longer was uploaded to MTV's The Leak, enabling the album to be streamed before it was released. The brothers performed their second single, "Lovebug" at the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards

One of the extra tracks, "Live to Party", was later the theme song for their television show Jonas.
