Had in mind a cover design idea for this album for a while now, glad to finally have it executed! With his to-be released debut album currently going under the title of Junior Year, I wanted the design to be very high school themed (hence the chalkboard equations in the background and the use of a ripped notebook paper for the logo).

EntertainmentWise released a review of Austin’s London show. Apparently they loved it, they called hims a superstar in the making! Here are some little bits from it:
He’s more Justin Timberlake than Justin Bieber
he’s more than just a one trick pony stripping back commanding the stage without the help of his slick backing dancers displaying some serious vocal talent!
From what we heard last night we can expect good things from the star’s debut record ‘Junior Year’
the crowd of teenage girls were going absolutely hysterical for their idol with screams in the tiny London club capable of raising the roof at Wembley Stadium.
They also clarified that Austin’s album (which they referred to as Junior Year -maybe they didn’t change the name?- is out in the UK in October!!
So for months now we’ve all known Austin’s Debut album would be called Junior Year, right? Well, wrong apparently. Even though it was published in a ton of magazine’s it looks like Austin’s management might have changed their minds. A lot has changed, it was supposed to be released late 2012, then Spring 2013.
So now it is going to be released this Fall/Autumn. And they aren’t going with the name Junior Year. I was wondering about that since they stopped putting the varsity font on his single covers. It looks like they are rebranding slightly. Anyway, Austin is not older than he was supposed to be when they were releasing it. So it wouldn’t make sense for it to still be junior year, right?
This is the article from The Hollywood Reporter:
Austin Mahone will release his yet-untitled debut album this fall via Chase/Universal Republic. The album, which does not currently have an official release date, will be preceded by the RedOne-produced single “What About Love” on June 10. The single will presumably give fans a taste of the forthcoming album.
“My album is coming out around the fall so it’s exciting,” Mahone told The Hollywood Reporter at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday. “I worked with RedOne. He’s done a lot of Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj so he’s a super talented guy. We don’t have title [for the record] yet. If I did I would tell you!”
It’s unclear if RedOne worked on additional tracks for the disc, although Mahone certainly makes it seem that way. The 17-year-old singer, who is opening for Taylor Swift’s Red Tour on select dates this summer, handed out the BBMA for Top EDM Artist to David Guetta, and noted that he has been inspired by the dance music genre on his album. Although that’s not to discount Mahone’s frequently referenced love for boy band pop.
“[The album is] gonna be a lot like Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync kind of melodies but like a new style of beat, kind of like EDM,” Mahone says. “New electronic style. It’s really hard to explain but just wait until it comes out.”
Austin posted a new video today of him singing and playing piano. There are no effects, just raw acoustic sound.
At first I thought it might have been a cover of a song I had never heard, but after googling some of the lyrics it looks like this is an original!
I would have guessed something like, “You Baby” for the title, but Austin tweeted this with the video: ‘U ’. Don’t know if that is him saying it is for ‘u’ the fans, or it might be called U too. So it looks like this could be a preview of the album Junior Year, what do you think?

They are from his official shoot by his record label. They are mostly school themed because his album will be titled Junior Year. The pictures are either brand new, or better quality than the ones already in the photo album.
Click the picture to see the rest. Are there any photos you haven’t seen before?
Austin has been back in the studio, and he is really getting excited to share the new music! He reckons we will really like it, can’t say I disagree. I haven’t been let down yet.
Here are some of the tweets he has been posting about it:
I got great stuff for you to hear
Should I have waffles for breakfast?
Okay so the waffles bit was totally random. But he really did say that, and I couldn’t resist putting it in. So who do you think is more excited about the album? Austin or his mahomies?
This picture is from the Junior Year photoshoot.
Its a really cute picture where Austin looks like he is day dreaming. Click on the picture to see it in full.
There are 3 more photos in the gallery from Austin’s official Junior Year photo shoot!
Right now this is the only place online that you can get all these pics! There are ten photos from the shoot so far.
If you have any pictures that we are missing please help us out! The aim of this site is to have all the stuff mahomies want in one place

It was published in Twist Magazine a couple of months ago that Austin would be releasing his first album. We all knew that, but the new details were that it would be called Junior Year, and it would release this year.
They said it would come out on December 18th. I didn’t pst this until I saw the magazine for myself and figured they’d have their facts straight. Well they didn’t.
I have confirmation from Austin’s management that the album will drop next year. It will be out Spring 2013! That is a definite. (There are rumours it will be March, but they are just rumours for now)
Even though it sucks that we will have to keep waiting, there is still a Say You’re Just A Friend music video to look forward to!
There are a few more photos from Austin’s Junior Year photo shoot in the gallery. They are possibly from different days/shoots but since they are all to promote the album they are getting put in together. Unless I get enough photos that each session should have its own album. Not that would be awesome!
This might be getting old, but it’s true, first fan site to have all these. Some others might have one or two, but not all. And the quality of these is a little bit better.
I also have the Say You’re Just A Friend and SaySomethin’ cover pictures without all the graphics, but I’m not sure if I should put them in the same album? What do you think?
Austin revealed yesterday that he is working with Red One (yeah the producer Lady Gaga sings about in Just Dance).
SHOUTOUT TO MY MAN! @RedOne_Official We’re making history bro.
He also said he is getting really excited to show his fans his new music. Well I think we are all getting excited to hear it! Hurry up already!! lol
You guys are gonna love my new songs!<3 (: I cant wait for you to hear them!
Don’t forget ‘Junior Year’ is coming out December 18th!
There is a
rumour going around that Austin has named his album! Apparently the album title was mentioned in a magazine, so if you can confirm this please do!
So do you want to know it? Really? You Do??
rumour is, it’s called “Junior Year”!
What do you think of the title? We should know soon if it’s true since the album is being released on December 18th!
Have you seen this in a magazine?
EDIT: It has been confirmed, it was in Twist Magazine!
