Nick Jonas previews the new music video for 'Levels'

Nick Jonas has revealed that he thinks the music video for 'Levels' is going to be "one of [his] strongest".

The former Jonas Brother gave fans a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the new video, due to be released later today.

Jonas told MTV News: "It's about continuing to set me up as a solo artist. And give people a better idea of the looks I'm trying to go for.

"I want people to think when they watch my videos and music. I'm excited. I think it's going to be one of my strongest videos."

He continued: "The song kind of cuts a new path for me, musically. It touches some of the soul elements, but also has that funk side. I think the video means that as well, really fresh."

The singer will perform 'Levels' during the MTV Video Music Awards pre-show later today.

The VMAs will see a comeback performance from Justin Bieber, while Taylor Swift is premiering her 'Wildest Dreams' music video.

Other performances will come from the likes of Nicki Minaj, The Weeknd and Demi Lovato.

Miley Cyrus will host this year's event, which will air live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
