Austin Mahone's Secret Is Out: Here's His Album Release And Tour Dates

On his 18th birthday, Austin announces that he will be releasing his debut album, The Secret, and will be hitting the road.

It may be Austin Mahone's 18th birthday, but he decided to give his Mahomies the ultimate gift: an album release date and an upcoming tour.

On Friday (April 4), Mahone not only announced that he will release his debut album, The Secret, on May 27, but he will hit the road on his "first big headline tour" kicking off July 25 with The Vamps and special guest Fifth Harmony.

"This is for my Mahomies. Thank you for supporting me and sticking with me all this time," the singer said in a press release. "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!"

Mahomies have been anxiously anticipating the pop star's debut, which he promises will be well worth the wait.

"My new album, I'm still putting it together, you know the reason why it's taking so long is because I just want to make [sure], you know, every song on there is perfect," the singer told MTV News in December of 2013. "I want my first album to just be crazy, like, 'Aw man this kid is like, this came out of nowhere, he's got an insane album,' so, I mean, I've worked with so many talented producers and so I just want to pick the right songs for it."

Mahone hooked up with producers Max Martin, Red One and Sean Garrett for his album, which will feature his single "MMM Yeah," and quite possibly that collaboration with Justin Bieber.

Just two months after the release, Mahone will hit the road in the MTV Presents Austin Mahone Tour, which kicks off in his hometown of San Antonio, Texas, on July 25 and stops in California, New York, Maryland and Ohio before wrapping up on September 9. In addition to the girls of 5H and the Vamps, Austin will also be joined by Shawn Mendes and Alex Angelo.

Austin is giving his Mahomies a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with MTV's Ultimate Fan Experience. Beginning May 3, fans can enter online for a chance to win a private dance lesson from Austin's crew for the winner and three friends, a "Mahomie" makeover, and get this, a chance to perform onstage with Austin to his song "MMM Yeah" at a select tour date. Don't worry, we'll remind you when the contest opens.
