The singer returns with "I Warned Myself," which marks his first new music since his Grammy-nominated 2018 album, "Voicenotes."
"I Warned Myself" was written and co-produced by Puth alongside American hitmaker Benny Blanco.
The sultry song, described as the first of a "new era," sees Puth crooning about a toxic relationship.
"Do you remember when you said, "Do not tell anybody/ 'Cause if ya do, I'll be the first to put my hands around your throat"?/ If you had nothing to hide, why is no one s'posed to know?", he sings over a reverberating bassline.
"I Warned Myself" arrived with a fiery accompanying visual, directed by Los Angeles-based filmmaker Brendan Vaughan.
The video features Puth in various situations with a female love interest, including a scene in which he stands in front of a burning door.
The dramatic visual is also intercut with clips of the vocalist driving through the desert in a red sports car.
As announced by Puth on Twitter, "I Warned Myself" is the first of three new songs to be released this summer.

His last solo album, "Voicenotes," came out last May. Since then, the singer of "Attention" has collaborated with Katy Perry on "Small Talk" as well as with 5 Seconds of Summer on "Easier."
Next fall, Puth will be performing at Midtown Music Festival in Atlanta and Rock in Rio in the Brazilian city. Additional information can be found on his official website.
