Today, Multi-GRAMMY® nominated singer/songwriter/producer Charlie Puth unveiled a compelling new visual for his single "How Long," which is available now at all music retailers and streaming services. Download/Stream HERE. "How Long" marks the second single released from Puth's highly-anticipated sophomore album,VoiceNotes, and the follow-up to 2016's RIAA Platinum certified debut album, Nine Track Mind. VoiceNotes arrives January 19th and is available now for pre-orderHERE.
The companion video for "How Long" finds the hit maker embracing the humor and humility of dancing. Per Charlie, this is the first video he felt he could step outside of his comfort zone and have fun doing it.
"How Long" was solely produced by Puth and written with collaborators Jacob Kasher (Attention) and Justin Franks (See You Again). With Puth as the sole producer on "How Long," he's giving fans another taste of the tone he's setting for VoiceNotes. Puth announced the album title VoiceNotes during a visit to the TODAY show earlier this summer; watch him explain the meaning here.
Last week, Puth celebrated his forthcoming album with a run of high-profile national TV performances supporting his RIAA Platinum-certified summer smash single"Attention," with appearances on The Late Late Show with James Corden, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Talk.
"How Long" follows "Attention," which was released earlier this year and went on to become Puth's first No. 1 at US Pop Radio, holding the top position four weeks in a row, in addition to peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 where it remained for three weeks straight. After earning RIAA Platinum certification less than 16 weeks after its release, "Attention" is officially Puth's most successful single to date. The official video has also become Charlie's highest performing solo video to date, reaching over 500 million views.
Both written and produced by Puth, "Attention" has garnered critical praise with the NY Times declaring it "a savage takedown rendered in pinpoint 1980s soft-soul haze smacked hard by glossy funk," while Billboard touted it as "a polished, groove-injected first taste from his upcoming sophomore album."
Since the release of "Attention," Puth has performed the single on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Voice, during Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacularand as part of The TODAY Show's Citi Concert Series. "Attention" went on to be remixed by several major artists, including two massive remixes by David Guetta andKYLE. Throughout the reign of "Attention" this summer, Puth joined Shawn Mendes on the road for an arena tour, and saw fans filling the entire room each night, singing along to every song he performed during his opening set.
