A few days ago we posted a photo of Austin Mahone in the studio, busy at work on his debut album. Now, thanks to a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, we know a little bit more about the upcoming release.
"My album is coming out around the fall so it's exciting," Austin told them at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday night. "I worked with RedOne. He's done a lot of Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, so he's a super talented guy."
According to the 17-year-old singer, there's no official title for the record yet (although we've heard rumors it will be called "Junior Year"), but he was able to reveal a little bit about what it will sound like.
"[The album is] gonna be a lot like Backstreet Boys and 'N Sync kind of melodies but like a new style of beat, kind of like EDM," Austin said. "New electronic style. It's really hard to explain but just wait until it comes out."
Austin's new RedOne-produced single "What About Love" -- which is currently available for pre-order on iTunes -- drops on June 10.
Are you guys as excited as we are to check it out?
