Rising pop star Austin Mahone turns 18 today (April 4). To celebrate, he announced his debut album The Secret, out May 27, plus dates for his first-ever headlining tour. “This is for Mahomies,” he 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 Secret will consist of just seven songs, including current single “Mmm Yeah” featuring Pitbull, plus bonus material. (Could it include a Justin Bieber collaboration? Instagram snapshots seem to hint at exactly that.) As fans await more details, they can start purchasing tickets for Mahone’s tour starting next week. Opening acts include rising UK quintet The Vamps (who opened for Taylor Swift) and The X Factor favorites Fifth Harmony.
