UPDATE: Shawn confirmed that something is coming on March 22 and 23 and also posted a high-def version of the promotional picture. See them below.
Shawn Mendes is gearing up to release new music, and it is on the way shortly. Today (March 19), the 19-year-old teamed up with Spotify to run a billboard announcing he has something up his sleeve. Debuting a serious-looking new promotional photo, the ad also includes a promise: “Coming soon.” This is the same method Troye Sivan used before unveiling his current single, “My My My!,” earlier this year, so it stands to reason that we could be hearing whatever is on the way before the end of the week.
This is not the first time the “There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” crooner alluded to new music, either. Last month he posted a pic of himself relaxing on a beach with another promise that an album was in the works. He also mysteriously posted a collage on his Instagram that included two washes of color: one beige and one coral. The post went up without any explanation, but it could be alluding to a color scheme for the new cover or even be hinting at a title? It is worth noting that the colors also match the scheme of his new featured photo on Twitter and Instagram, which is a drawing of a bouquet of flowers.
Although Shawn is being pretty vague with his promises so far, the timing makes sense. He has been dropping yearly releases — reissues included — since the arrival of Handwritten in 2015. That means we’re due for the follow-up to 2016’s Illuminate in the next few months. His last LP topped the charts and spawned two top 10 hits in America, so he is hopefully prepared to come back with another anthem. Check out the advertisement below!
