Shawn Mendes wrapped his most-recent world tour in December, but he’s not taking a break, well not completely.
In January, the Canadian singer teased that he would be getting back into the studio to finish his third album, and now it seems like the time is almost upon us, even if Mendes himself is on vacation on an island, far, far away from a recording studio.
On Sunday (Feb. 11), Mendes revealed another clue on when we can expect the third album, and it’s closer than you might’ve guessed. “Album soon come,” he simply captioned a relaxed picture of himself on a tropical island.
While the exact date isn’t included in this tease, based on the fact that Mendes seems to be at ease in this photo (it’s of him sitting on a swing with his feet in the ocean), the arrival of his next record could be so close that his work on it is already done.
Could this vacation — which is in Jamaica — be a celebratory trip to mark the finish of his third complete album? Or maybe, his Jamaican vacation is to celebrate the end of his tour and the impending release of the next almost-finished album. Either way, this teaser snap and caption is good news for all of us.
What do you think about Mendes’ latest tease? Is the new album ready to drop?
