Austin Mahone isn't going anywhere, Mahomies. In fact, the 'All I Ever Need' singer is entirely focused on his career and is determined to be a lasting presence in the music industry.

"Whenever people see me, I'm a young dude and I sing, and I feel like they're just like, 'Oh, there's just another teen pop star. He's going to have a few songs,' " Mahone recently revealed to USA Today.

"But I want to be more than that. I want to grow, I want to challenge myself to be better and to be different," he continued. "I want people to know I'm in it for the long run, so you better get used to me."

Mahone recently wrapped his summer tour with the Vamps, Fifth Harmony and Shawn Mendes, and now he is hard at work at his first full-length album, revealing that he is "going to try to get this one done as soon as possible to get more material out."

When PopCrush talked with Austin Mahone earlier this year, he said he was trying to release the album around "November or so," but said if he couldn't make it by then, he'd try and release it in early 2015. All we know is we can't wait.
