While chatting with the Zach Sang Show backstage at the American Music Awards last week, Mendes opened up about his upcoming record and got really honest about where he’s at in the process.
“It’s going good. We have a lot of songs. To be honest, I don’t really know what I’m doing. I mean I never know what I’m doing,” Mendes told the hosts of the Zach Sang Show at the 2017 AMAs.
Although the Canadian crooner admitted that he never really knows where an album is going to go this early in the process, he is confident that his fans will love it, because he’s going to work very hard on making it the best.
“I think it’s going to be amazing. I know it’s going to be amazing, because I’m not going to let it not be amazing,” he said. “But ya, I’m still just kind of exploring and learning. It’s going to be great.”
With so much success on both his debut record, Handwritten, and his follow-up album, Illuminate, there is no doubt in his fans’ minds that he will rise to the occasion on the third record and release another killer group of songs.
Now all we need is a release date, or maybe a single from the record to see where he is in fact headed with this album.
