Shawn Mendes is constantly on the go, but no matter how busy he is he’s always thinking of his fans and wanting to make sure they’re happy. Earlier this month, the Canadian singer finally gave his followers a real album update, and we couldn’t be more grateful.
While fans have been happy seeing Mendes on tour over the past year — his Illuminate World Tour pretty much took all of his time in 2017 — they are ready for new music and the good news is, it’s almost here.
“Really love you guys. Excited for you to hear all the new music,” Mendes tweeted earlier this month. “Feels like it’s been forever working on it, put all i have into this album. Hang in there just a little longer x.”
The last time Mendes dropped a new album was in 2016 with his Illuminate record, and as we all know it was a massive success. Now, the “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” singer is working on his third studio album — he technically released a live record in 2017 so we have heard semi-fresh tracks more recently — but clearly it’s taking a while to finish.
Beginning in January, the “Treat You Better” singer started teasing the fact that album number three was underway, with pictures of him playing his guitar and working in the studio. This recent update, however, is the most information we’ve gotten from Mendes, and it promises that his tracks will be worth the wait, which let’s be honest, we already knew.
In February, Mendes went on a much-needed tropical vacation, and yet he still found time to work on his album, and tease its arrival, so even though we are in holding pattern, Mendes is finding the time to make this record great.
Now all we need is a release date, so we can mark it on our calendars and begin an official countdown to new music.
