Shawn Mendes revels in pop rock on new single, “In My Blood.”

Mendes is readying his third studio album, the first taste of which is out tonight (March 21).

The track 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 carry on 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.”

It’s the most personal release we’ve heard from the 19-year-old yet.
