Austin Mahone's Debut Album 'The Secret' Gets May Release Date
Austin Mahone's long-awaited debut album finally has an official title and release date, just in time for his 18th birthday today. "The Secret" will be shared on May 27, and following the album release, the pop star will embark on a North American headlining tour.
Mahone has previewed his debut release with the single "Mmm Yeah" featuring Pitbull, and has worked with RedOne and Max Martin in recent months. Last year, the Texas native made his Hot 100 debut with the track "What About Love," and told Billboard in December that he was anxiously trying to finish up his debut.
"This is for my Mahomies," Mahone said in a statement. "Thank you for supporting me and sticking with me all this time. I couldn't think of a better way to celebrate my birthday than to be able to announce new music and a huge tour for all you guys!"
The MTV Presents Austin Mahone tour -- which follows Mahone's Artist To Watch Award win at last year's MTV Video Music Awards -- will be the teen's biggest live run to date, with the Vamps, Fifth Harmony, Shawn Mendes and Alex Angelo serving as support on select dates. The trek begins on July 25 with a hometown show at the Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio.
