It's About Time is the debut studio album from the Jonas Brothers. It was released on August 8, 2006 on Columbia Records. The album was successful in the Christian genre[citation needed] and was released in Christian bookstores through INO Records.[3][3][4] Later an amended version of the album was released through Daylight Records with three songs removed and replaced by three others. A DualDisc of this version of the album was also released.

The album is currently out of print, so copies of it are rare and expensive, but both versions are available on eBay and on digital download.[citation needed]

One of the songs on the album, "Time for Me to Fly", was featured in the film "Aquamarine" in 2006.[5]

"Mandy" was the first single and was released in the United States on December 27, 2005. It was written about a friend and featured on Zoey 101: Music Mix, the soundtrack for the show, Zoey 101, and featured in the TV movie, Spring Break-Up.

After Columbia Records dropped the group from their roster list, they signed with Hollywood. Hollywood received the rights to distribute the single "Year 3000" which was also released on the group's first Hollywood Records album.

The album also managed to sell 62000 copies in the US, including all of the CD copies of the album shipped by Columbia Records.[6]

In August 2012, the Jonas Brothers announced the vinyl re-release of the album exclusively in the 2012 gift for premium members of Team Jonas along with a digital download with each vinyl album. The songs "What I Go to School For" and "Year 3000" are covers originally by former English pop rock band Busted.

Music videos[edit]

These are the three videos made for the song 'Mandy' by the Jonas Brothers, directed by Ondi Timoner.

Episode 1: (Filmed at Pasadena High School in Pasadena, California). The school bell rings and everyone leaves. Nick notices Mandy has dropped her phone. He picks it up and rushes through the hallway. In the parking lot he sees Mandy with her boyfriend (played by Roderick Galloway) and his friends. Nick runs up and gives Mandy her phone. Mandy's boyfriend follows Nick after school, chasing him down the street in his car.

Episode 2: Nick runs onto the sidewalk and Mandy's boyfriend gets out of his car to look for him. He eventually gives up, only to see Nick in a car with his brothers, Joe and Kevin, who drive by, laughing. Later that night, Mandy and her boyfriend are at the homecoming dance and are announced as homecoming King and Queen. The Brothers are also there. Mandy tries to leave, but her boyfriend grabs her and kisses her ferociously. She pulls away and runs outside, then faced with the Brothers, who offer her a ride home. Mandy's boyfriend watches them drive off. She walks in her house and she and her dad start fighting. Mandy runs out and her boyfriend and his friends pull up beside The Brothers; Mandy is unsure what to do.

Episode 3: The next day Mandy is out with her boyfriend, who is crushing a mailbox with a baseball bat. Later, at school, Mandy returns a necklace to her boyfriend, and appears to be breaking up with him. She finds Joe and Nick sitting by a tree, and the three engage in light conversation. Her ex-boyfriend sees this and threateningly approaches. Mandy runs off to find Kevin. Mandy and Kevin get in his car and ride to where Nick and Joe are. Nick and Joe get in the car and speed off. The Brothers pick up two more girls and they all wave to Mandy's ex-boyfriend. They all go to a building where the Brothers play the song. The episode ends with a sly, "The End?".

Tours[edit]

On November 5, 2005, Jonas Brothers began their first tour in support of the album. A second tour, Jonas Brothers American Club Tour promoted abstinence from illegal drugs.[7] The tour consisted of gigs in clubs, and with small crowds. The tour started on January 28, 2006 and ended on March 3, 2006 with a total of 28 shows.

2012 vinyl re-release[edit]

On August 2012, news broke out from the Jonas Brothers about the vinyl edition re-release of It's About Time exclusively for Team Jonas members. The vinyl re-release of the album will be part of the 2012 gift available exclusively for renewing or new premium members upon payment. The vinyl album also includes a digital download of the album.
