Austin Mahone unveiled the cover and tracklist of debut EP 'The Secret'. See what made the cut.

Austin Mahone‘s debut album was originally scheduled for release in October last year but it was pushed back to mid-2015. To be fair, the 18-year-old has released two EPs (including The Secret) but fans are thirsty for more and aren’t afraid to let him know it. The YMCMB signee responded to questions about the delay on Twitter and revealed that he’s still working on the opus. “I don’t wanna rush it and then put out a single that doesn’t do well,” he explained.

“I wanna take time to make sure that I have some incredible, next level, monster smashes that I can release and feel good about,” Austin continued. “And believe me I’ve got some crazy songs that are potential next singles but i want to be sure. I’m going to LA in Feb. To finish my first album once and for all.” The teen superstar’s last single “Mmm Yeah” was his highest charting song yet — reaching number 49 on the Billboard Hot 100. See his tweets after the jump.
