The album follows 2016’s double platinum Illuminate which spawned three top 10 radio hits, and 2014’s Handwritten which included the seven-time platinum smash No. 1 single “Stitches,” both of which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. “In My Blood” and “Lost In Japan,” the first two tracks off the upcoming album, released to rave reviews and received critical acclaim from outlets including Rolling Stone, Billboard, the New York Times and Variety. Both tracks have already experienced massive success, soaring to the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on the overall iTunes chart in the U.S., top five on iTunes in 50 countries, and holding the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on Spotify’s “New Music Friday” playlist. The newly released third song off the album, “Youth” featuring Khalid has already reached No. 1 on iTunes in the U.S. Additional yet-to-be-released tracks on the album include "Fallin' All In You" (co-written by Ed Sheeran), “Particular Taste” (co-written by Ryan Tedder), and "Like To Be You” featuring Julia Michaels who co-wrote the song. The song also features a guitar solo from John Mayer, who produced the track.
