After what’s felt to some fans like an eternity, Charlie Puth is ready to make a full-fledged comeback this fall.
The four-time Grammy nominee (and noted oversharer) confirmed on social media Thursday that his hotly anticipated third album, simply titled “Charlie,” will drop Oct. 7.
“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,” Puth wrote on Instagram. “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.”
He also shared the album’s cover image.
Puth didn’t confirm a track listing for the album, which will be his first since 2018’s “Voicenotes.”
Since the start of 2022, however, 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.
And two years ago, he unveiled “Girlfriend,” complete with a quirky video that reflected many of his fans’ experiences in the early days of COVID-19.

Puth has described much of the creative process behind “Charlie” on TikTok, where he has more than 18 million followers. Earlier this year, he said fans can expect the album to be his most personal work to date.
“I’m just oversharing life experiences and putting melody sprinkles on top of that,” Puth told E! News in February. “I’m proud of myself that I opened up. I’m calling it ‘Charlie’ for that reason … I love oversharing and I’m going to continue to do it. I can’t really see putting out music a different way.”
