Today, multi-platinum artist/songwriter/producer Charlie Puth has released his new track, “If You Leave Me Now” featuring the famed R&B vocal trio Boyz II Men, available now at all music retailers and streaming services HERE. “If You Leave Me Now” marks the third song released from Puth’s highly-anticipated sophomore album, Voicenotes, and the follow-up to 2016’s RIAA Platinum certified debut album, Nine Track Mind. Last night, Puth announced the new release date for Voicenotes, which will now arrive May 11th.
2017 proved to be a massively successful year for Puth, as he unveiled critically-acclaimed instant-hits “Attention” and “How Long,” the first two singles from Voicenotes, the eagerly-awaited album he is fully producing on his own. The album’s first single “Attention” – which became Puth’s fifth RIAA-certified platinum selling single, third Billboard Hot 100 Top 10 and first #1 on pop radio – cracked 3 million Spotify streams in just a week, while its sexy music video racked up over 3 million views in under 24 hours. The New York Times praised it as “a sinister thumper,” while noting upon the release of “How Long” that “the once tightly controlled pop-soul singer is maturing with a robust second act full of bruises.” Puth’s current smash single, “How Long,” has officially entered the Top 10 on both Hot AC and Top 40 radio formats, and was named by Vanity Fair as one of “The 17 Best Pop Songs of 2017.” “How Long” is joined by an even more popular companion visual, currently boasting over 200 million views via YouTube alone.
Puth recently announced plans for his biggest North American headline tour to date. Produced by Live Nation, “The Voicenotes Tour” officially gets underway July 11 at Toronto, ON’s Budweiser Stage and travels the continent through the summer (see full itinerary below). Highlights include dates at New York City’s world-famous Radio City Music Hall (July 16) and the renowned Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (August 14). Multi-Platinum recording artist Hailee Steinfeld will be main support on all dates.
In addition to performing for a third year in a row on the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour, with the Los Angeles Times praising his “genuine charm and daffy enthusiasm” at the stop at The Forum, Puth capped off 2017 with explosive performances of “How Long” on both The Voice and Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve. Prior to that, he performed the track on Good Morning America (watch) & The Late Late Show with James Corden (watch). Puth will perform “How Long” on upcoming episodes of the nationally syndicated Ellen DeGeneres Show and CBS’ The Talk, both set to air in early January.
