Nick Jonas has said feeling “disconnected” from his wife Priyanka Chopra-Jonas helped inspire his latest album.

Chopra Jonas, 38, was away in Germany last year while Jonas, 28, stayed in America to work on his new album - called Spaceman.

Chopra Jonas is shooting for The Matrix 4 - which is set for release later this year. She is currently in London for work.

Speaking on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Jonas said: “You know, I sort of started writing this record back in July.

“My wife was over in Germany, finishing up this little movie called The Matrix and I was like, ‘You know, I feel very disconnected from the world, first of all, and now my person.

“And, I just dug in writing it with Greg Kurstin (American record producer) and Mozella (American songwriter).

“This year of being sort of disconnected from reality, disconnected from the world, and feeling like we’re on our planet.

“And, you know, also obviously missing her at the time, as well, and then reconnecting with her.”

He said another theme was “hopefulness for the future”.

Previously, Chopra Jonas has spoken about her marriage and how the pair - who are based in the States - were lucky to be able to spend so much time together due to the pandemic.

She explained: “He’s great, and we would’ve never had as much time with each other as we got during this quarantine.

"It only took a global pandemic for us to align our schedules together, but that was definitely a silver lining is to be able to be home."
