Charlie Puth releases his new song “Hero”

  • by

Charlie Puth is back with new music, posting on Instagram: ‘My new song HERO is about when you see someone you love hurting themselves, ruining the things in their life that are good, but you just can’t save them. It’s one of the hardest songs I’ve ever had to write, but I wrote it in hopes that you’ve gone through something similar in your life, and that it can fill in the BLANK for you like it did for me. I’m very excited to share my next album with you, especially this song because it’s a great representation of what’s to come. I’ve never put out a song like this before- it’s very different for me, but I want to thank @taylorswift for letting me know musically that I just couldn’t keep this on my hard drive any longer. HERO is yours on May 24th and this is the single artwork. Thank you to all of my fans- you’ll never know how much you mean to me…’

The 32-year-old singer-songwriter said that he decided to release the song after being inspired by fellow singer Taylor Swift, who referenced Puth on her song “The Tortured Poets Department,” which features the lyric, “We declared Charlie Puth should be a bigger artist.”

“Hero” is Puth’s second song of 2024, following his collaboration with K-pop group Stray Kids, “Lose My Breath” featuring Charlie Puth. He released his most recent album, Charlie, in October 2022.
