“I am excited about doing this project with Nick,” Jordan tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “I also admire Nick’s ability, I admire his talent and the way he performs onstage. I think he’s a great partner to do this new project with.”

Nick & Knight’s self-titled album is due out on September 2, and if you pre-order it here, you can download their first single, “Just the Two of Us,” now.
