UPDATE: Sept. 4, 10:25 p.m. EDT -- Shortly after his episode of “Songland” aired on Wednesday, Charlie Puth took to social media to explain why his version of the winning song, “Bad Habit,” wasn’t released, and why the track's original songwriter’s version was instead.

“As a singer-songwriter myself, it is important for me to recognize that sometimes a song deserves to be released by the person who wrote it,” he wrote. “‘Bad Habit’ is truly something special, and should be Zach [Sorgen’s] song to put out into the world.”

Puth continued: “I could have only dreamed of having a platform like ‘Songland’ as a launching pad when I was starting my career. Zach is so incredibly talented, so please go support the song and give this songwriter the spotlight that he deserves.”

Original story: “See You Again” singer Charlie Puth has had quite a few hits over the last few years, but he’s ready for his next one. Luckily, episode 10 of NBC’s “Songland” had exactly the song he was looking for.

Up-and-coming songwriter Sam DeRosa, who actually attended Berklee College of Music with Puth, kicked the show off with her song, “Pill for This.” She was followed up by Zach Sorgen and his song “Habit,” Paris Williams with “Pity Party” and Joel Adams with “Hate Love.”

The “Attention” crooner ended up choosing Sorgen, Adams and DeRosa for the Top 3, sending them off to work with the in-house writer-producers — Ryan Tedder, Ester Dean and Shane McAnally — to touch up their songs before it was time for the final performance.

After the contestants returned to the stage to sing the new versions, Puth had to make the tough decision of who would be the winner and which song he’d record for himself. In the end, he went with Sorgen’s newly-titled “Bad Habit.”

Puth’s recording of it isn’t yet available online, but “Songland” does have Sorgen’s version streaming on Spotify.

Even though Adams’ “Hate Love” and DeRosa’s “Pill for This” didn’t win, fans can still at least grab DeRosa’s track on Spotify and iTunes. Plus, Williams, whose artist name is Parisalexa, also has her song, “Pity Party,” up online for everyone to enjoy.

Add these new songs to your playlist, listen to them on repeat, and, before you know it, it’ll be time for another new episode of “Songland,” which airs on NBC on Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EDT.
