Shawn Mendes is focused on new music once again, and it is literally music to our ears!
On Friday (Nov. 3), Mendes released Shawn Mendes: Unplugged, an acoustic record of his live performance on MTV’s Unplugged, which took place earlier this year. Although fans have been enjoying listening to Mendes’ most popular tracks unplugged, they’ll be even happier to know that the Canadian singer is currently working on his third studio album — full of all-new music.
“Deep in album 3 land! Sorry for the inactivity guys x,” Mendes tweeted on Sunday, and really, no apology necessary Shawn!
Although the “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” singer’s third album has yet to be titled (he is currently calling it Album 3) and we don’t have a release date just yet, knowing that Mendes is back in the studio and “deep” into his music process is great news for his devoted fans.
While Mendes is keeping his recording process and the actual tunes he creates for this record under wraps, he’s already teased the next album a few times, and it sounds like it’s going to be amazing.
“Haha hard to tell but I’m making album 3 right now and I just hope it can be even better and bigger than the last one,” Mendes previously told Billboard when asked about what the future holds.
An album that is “bigger and better” sounds good to us. Who knows, maybe fans will be getting a new single or two come early 2018 — one can hope!
