In an interview on 8 January 2018 with Caspar Lee, Maynard discussed the status of his new album. He revealed that following the success of his debut album, he entered into a relationship and found it difficult to effectively split his time which resulted in the disappointing charting of Talking About and Royalty. Maynard subsequently began making the majority of his income via online stream such as YouTube and Spotify as opposed to album sales and live performances. He then admitted that he wants to release a new album of original music online but is currently unable to because he is under contractual talks with his label. He also stated that once the situation is fixed he will be able to release original content.
On 28 June 2019, Maynard released his first original single in 4 years called 'Hate How Much I Love You' which was released by Parlophone Records, followed by 2 more tracks called 'Not Over You' and 'Waste Your Time'.
In 2020, Maynard released a single called 'Nothing But You' and another single called 'For the Night'. Like Maynard has previously said, he doesn't want to release an album any more. They don't do well and you are labelled as a flop artist, while singles do much better. He also said that, in future if his singles perform well, he will put all his singles in an album with some more new songs.
