Out tonight.


Listen to a couple of previews of Shawn’s new song “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” before it premieres at midnight.


No need to speculate any longer. Shawn Mendes confirms the existence of “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back.” The pop star shared a link to his website with a countdown. The track drops on Wednesday at midnight.

Shawn didn’t clarify whether it’s a one-off track or the lead single from his third studio album, but one thing’s for sure: new music is on the way.


There’s no doubt about it: Shawn Mendes is one of the biggest music super stars right now.

The 18-year-old has been performing around the globe on the Illuminate World Tour for a better part of a year, and he’s preparing to kickoff the second leg starting April 27 in Glasgow.

By now, Shawn is probably tired of singing the same ol songs off his most-recent No. 1 album, so he’s readying new music. According to All Access, the pop star has a song titled “Holdin Me Back” on the way. No word whether the song is a one-off, a single off a possible Illuminate re-issue or the first taste of his next album.

The news comes on the heels of his Billboard Music Awards nominations, including Top Artist, Top Male Artist and Top Social Artist.

It’s unclear when the song drops, but it could be as soon as this Friday (April 14).
