Before hitting play on Charlie Puth's new single, 'Light Switch,' know that this funky, upbeat track will likely be stuck in your head for the rest of the day. Maybe even tomorrow, too. Don't say we didn't warn you.

On Thursday (January 20), Puth released his latest single, which he produced and co-wrote alongside longtime collaborators Jake Torrey and JKash. The song's lyrics detail a frustrating on-again-off-again romance while the clever production even includes the click of a light switch on the chorus.

“You turn me on like a light switch/ When you’re movin’ your body around and around/ Now, I don’t wanna fight this/ You know how to just make me want/ You turn me on like a light switch/ When you’re movin’ your body around and around/ You got me in a tight grip,” Puth sings on the track.

Making this song truly of the moment, Puth documented his songwriting process for 'Light Switch' on TikTok over the course of several months. “On the songwriting level, it was really cool to share this song with the fans while I made it,” he said of this new approach to releasing music. “So [fans] felt like they were involved at the very beginning of the song, like they almost wrote it with me.”

Few details are known about Puth's upcoming album, Charlie, at this time, though he's long been teasing the project. Fans are certainly eager for more music from Puth, as it's been three years since he dropped Voicenotes.

The 30-year-old artist has been filling fans in on what they can expect from this next project, including a different sound to his voice. “First thing you’ll notice is my voice sounds different because I had my nose fixed and tonsils out…I sound less…scratchy hahah,” he recently tweeted.

Until Charlie finally arrives we'll just have to listen to 'Light Switch' on repeat.
