Singer Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers is taking a step back from his child star singing style and delving into the world and demands of being a solo artist.

His debut solo album Fastlife comes out on Oct. 11, 2011.

My primary concern was the fans' understanding that it wasn't the end of the Jonas Brothers, he said, the Philippine Star reported. It was just time that we're taking and that I was just focusing on this project for the time being.

Twitter is abuzz with fans itching to get their hands on his new album as soon as it is available on iTunes.

The moment that all Jonas fans have been waiting for...is only a few more hours away. I can't wait! one fan Tweeted.

Jonas will be touring with Britney Spears in Europe starting Sunday, USA Today reported.
