Shawn Mendes shares the video for his honest lead single, “In My Blood.”

Mendes is readying his third studio album, the first taste of which dropped late last month. Today (April 24), the singer shares an intimate visual for the track, which finds Mendes deep in contemplation, unable to stand up and carry on. We love a philosophical pop star.

“In My Blood” features a sugary pre-chorus that rolls through an uplifting rock-tinged chorus. It’s very John Mayer meets Justin Bieber-level fame meets 2018 Shawn Mendes, whoever that may be. 

On the Teddy Geiger-produced track, Shawn sings about traversing through his superstardom – how his overwhelming notoriety often feels like it cripples his humanity – yet he finds the strength to move forward anyhow.

“Help me, it’s like the walls are caving in,” he sings. “Sometimes I feel like giving up / No medicine is strong enough / Someone help me / I’m crawling in my skin / Sometimes I feel like giving up / But I just can’t, it isn’t in my blood.”
