Charlie Puth Announces Third Album, ‘Charlie’
Charlie Puth has announced the release of his upcoming album, Charlie. The album will be out on 7 October and is available to pre-order here.
In a post on Instagram to unveil the artwork Puth wrote: “This is the official artwork for my album ‘CHARLIE’. This album was born on the internet, and I’ve had so much fun making it in front of all of you this past year. 2019 me used to think that in order to be an artist, you had to hide away and talk to nobody to make your art. Turns out you make MUCH better art when you involve millions of people in the process. (For me at least.)
“I hope you scream cry every word when I sing these songs on tour because they wouldn’t be here without you. Thank you.”
A press release said that “the highly anticipated return promises to be his most personal record to date, with every song authentically representing a piece of himself.”
Since the start of 2022 the New Jersey-born singer-songwriter has released a trio of sterling singles, Light Switch, That’s Hilarious and Left And Right, the last of which features a guest appearance by Jung Kook of BTS. The release of Left and Right comes just a week after the duo teased the song on TikTok, following rumours that the American singer-songwriter was going to collaborate with the K-pop boyband.
It’s a collaboration that has looked likely for some time. Back in 2018, Jungkook joined Charlie Puth on stage for a performance of his hit single We Don’t Talk Anymore at the MGA Awards in Incheon, Korea. Later that evening, Puth returned the favour by joining the hugely successful septet to perform a piano version of their song Fake Love.
