Get excited music lovers, because Shawn Mendes is releasing new music very soon!

On Monday (April 17), the 18-year-old singer first announced, or more accurately, teased, that new music was on its way.

He posted two photos on Monday to tease his new single.

“There’s Nothing #HoldinMeBack,” he captioned the first image of himself holding a guitar with a blue-hued lens over everything.

The second picture looks like blue smoke and has the same words on top of it. This time he added a link to his website, which features a countdown clock that ends on midnight tonight.



The Canadian singer then took to social media in the early morning hours on Tuesday and to reveal that fans can expect his new single to drop tomorrow morning (Thursday, the 20th). According to his Instagram, the single is called, “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.”



According to Billboard, the new song was written by Mendes with the help of Teddy Geiger (who co-wrote “Stitches”), Scott Harris (who co-wrote “Treat You Better”), and Geoff Warburton (who co-wrote “Crazy”).

Mendes is currently on his Illuminate world tour, so lucky fans who have already bought tickets will hopefully be able to hear this new track live, beginning next week!

“The minute I wrote this song I knew I wanted to get it out before my tour started, to give fans something new and fresh in addition to everything from Illuminate,” Mendes said in a statement via Billboard. “I can’t wait to perform it on the tour, and for everyone to hear it. It’s equal parts what is amazing about this album, and what I’m so excited for about the music I have coming up next.”

With all this hype, we can’t wait to hear Mendes’ new song.
