LISTEN: Shawn Mendes Is Back With "In My Blood"

There's nothing holding Shawn Mendes back in today's release, and we already love the song. 

Yes, the pop super star just released his highly-anticipated new single,  "In My Blood."

"In My Blood" is the first single from his upcoming studio album. We don't know much about that  album, but it is expected to drop later this year. 

Today's track builds with a message of resilience. 

"Laying on the bathroom floor, feeling nothing / I'm overwhelmed and insecure, give me something," he sings out of desperation in the song's opening verse.

As the track builds in the chorus, Mendes bounces back.  "Sometimes I feel like giving up / But I just can't," he sings.

The song is incredibly personal for Shawn, by the way.  

"This song is the closest song to my heart that I've ever written & I hope you guys love it and all the new music coming your way," the 19-year-old said. 

Mendes also thanked his fans for the sticking by his side as he worked on the new album.

Thank you xx #InMyBlood
