Charlie Puth – How Long

How Long” is a song by American singer and songwriter Charlie Puth. Written and produced by Puth, with additional songwriting by Jacob Kasher and DJ Frank E, the song was released on October 5, 2017, by Atlantic Records, as the second single from Puth’s upcoming second studio album, Voicenotes (2018).

“How Long,” the second single from Charlie’s upcoming album VoiceNotes, sees Charlie apologizing to a girl for being unfaithful. Charlie teased the track on social media in the week leading up to its release and posted a video of the voice note behind the track the night before it came out.

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest released the day after this song dropped, Charlie discussed the similarities between this track and his previous single, “Attention”:

With the theme of ‘Attention’ kinda being a ‘bass’ song, I didn’t want it to be, like, a ripoff of ‘Attention,’ but lyrically, the song is like part two of ‘Attention,’ as far as the story goes. I’ll leave that up to interpretation.

Charlie teased the song over social media in September 2017, when he tweeted two photos in a row: the first was captioned “HOW,” and the second was captioned “LONG.” This continued into October, when he posted photos and video clips with the captions, “HAS,” “THIS,” “BEEN,” and “GOING.” The teasing ended on October 4th, when Charlie posted a video of the voice note recording behind the song with the caption “ON.”

In an interview with Ryan Seacrest, Charlie said:

It was originally supposed to be in E-flat minor. […] With the theme of ‘Attention’ kinda being a ‘bass’ song, I didn’t want it to be, like, a ripoff of ‘Attention,’ but lyrically, the song is like part two of ‘Attention,’ as far as the story goes. I’ll leave that up to interpretation. […] In my mind, it had to start out with a bass, but not so much a bass with so much melody, just like a [makes noise], like a walking bassline.

Charlie hasn’t and probably won’t ever reveal who specifically the song is about but in an interview with “Access Hollywood”, Charlie explained that it is something he has experienced in life and is personal to him.
