All Aboard! Meghan Trainor Is Releasing ‘The Love Train’ EP
Meghan “MTrain” Trainor readies new EP, The Love Train.
This makes a lot of sense. Meghan Trainor recently made her forthcoming album, Treat Myself, no longer available for pre-order on iTunes. Now we know why. The singer is dropping a six-track EP titled The Love Train, out Friday (Feb. 8).
It features previously released track, “All The Ways” and a collaboration with her dad, Gary.
Meghan Trainor’s forthcoming album is no longer… forthcoming.
Last summer, Meghan told us Treat Myself wouldn’t drop until January 2019, but Megatronz have uncovered some unsettling news. Initially, we thought the record was pushed back again, until Feb. 1 – a retail site advertised that release date, however that listing has since been removed – but the latest buzz says it may not come at all. Treat Myself is no longer available for pre-order – it used to appear on iTunes and now it doesn’t.
In a recent interview with EW, Meghan said “I just keep writing songs and my management and label both agree we can’t stop here.”
I’m not sure what to make of this, but Meghan heading back to the drawing board is not a good sign. It’s hard for a label to justify spending advertising dollars on something that wasn’t taking off. It’s sink or swim time.

Well this is unfortunate. Meghan Trainor’s new album was originally meant to drop on August 31st, but the singer confirmed via social media she’s postponing it.
“This past year has been one of the most exciting of my entire life. I got engaged to the love of my life, Daryl! I got to hang out with Diddy, DJ Khaled and Fergie on The Four, and I released five new songs that I’m absolutely obsessed with,” she said.
“I’m in such an amazing place and I can’t stop writing songs… I’ve decided to move my new album TREAT MYSELF until I get everything out of my head and recorded in the studio. I’ve never been more excited for all of you to hear my new music. Thank you for your continued love and support.”
Meghan Trainor has some pretty cheeky titles in catalogue, so it makes complete sense that fans are speculating her forthcoming record is titled Treat Myself. It’s kind of her thing.
Where did this title come from? M-Train is doing a lot of press right now to promote her new music, specifically the record’s lead single, “No Excuses,” and though she hasn’t yet confirmed the album title, she did offer a bit of a teaser.
In her interview with The Zach Sang Show, Meghan actually said the name of it, which we’re assuming is also a song title, but is leaving it up to the listener to decide what they think it could be. I love a game.
Fans are piecing together all of the titles they believe will land on Meghan’s new LP, which she says could consist of around 12-15 songs. Those include “Evil Twin,” “Marry Me,” “Treat Myself,” “Good Morning,” “Call Us Criminals,” “No Excuses” and “Can’t Dance.” The reigning contender is “Treat Myself.”
In a separate interview, Meghan explained how her battle with anxiety and panic attacks inspired that song.
“I was uneducated about anxiety and how it could physically rattle you,” she said. “I assumed no one had experienced what I was going through because when I would tell my mom ‘I’m going to the emergency room because I can’t breathe right now’ she would be like ‘no, no, I’ll come rub your head.’ The songs that came after this, I was like, ‘ha ha!’ I did one song called ‘Treat Myself’ and it was about how, finally, when my therapist looked at me and was like, ‘Look at you! You’re not shaking anymore and you’re not miserable and sad! You’re like, really happy and everything is going great for you — don’t forget to treat yourself and do something for you. Go get a spa day or do something…’
She added, “I bought a car and was like, ‘treat myself!’”
