Charlie Puth has teamed up with Babyface for a new collaboration.

“Working on ideas for the new album with @babyface,” the singer, songwriter, and record producer posted to his Instagram account.

Babyface, real name Kenneth Edmonds, recently co-wrote and produced songs for Bruno Mars (“Too Good to Say Goodbye”), Nathan Sykes (“I Can’t Be Mad”), Zendaya (“Something New”), Foxes (“Scar”), Kat Graham (“Secrets”), Jordin Sparks (“They Don’t Give”) and Samantha Jade (“Shake That”).

Along with regular collaborators Antonio “L.A.” Reid and Daryl Simmons, he has helmed singles performed by Paula Abdul (“Knocked Out”), Karyn White (“Superwoman”), Pebbles (“Girlfriend”), Whitney Houston (“Queen of the Night”) and Sheena Easton (“The Lover in Me”).

Meanwhile, Puth is expected to release his sophomore album in 2017 via Warner Music Group / Atlantic Records.

The still-untitled collection reportedly delivers additional contributions from Pharrell Williams, Ilsey Juber, Toby Gad, Jacob Kasher, Ammar Malik, Wayne Hector, Ross Golan, Julia Michaels, and Eskeerdo.

Puth debut studio collection, “One Track Mind,” peaked to number six on the US Billboard 200 Albums Chart and spawned singles including “One Call Away,” “We Don’t Talk Anymore” and “Dangerously.”

On the songwriting and production front, Puth recently helmed “Oops” for Little Mix alongside regular collaborators Jacob Luttrell and Mike Caren. The track appears on Little Mix’s fourth album, “Glory Days.”
