Shawn Mendes fronts his first-ever headlining arena tour this summer. He kicks things off on Thursday, April 27 in Glasgow, before heading back to the United States on July 6. Ahead of the first show, the Canadian cutie debuts a brand new track.
“The minute I wrote this song I knew I wanted to get it out before my tour started, to give fans something new and fresh in addition to everything from Illuminate,” Mendes said in a statement. “I can’t wait to perform it on the tour, and for everyone to hear it. It’s equal parts what is amazing about this album, and what I’m so excited for about the music I have coming up next.”
“There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back” is exactly what you’d expect from the 18-year-old singer, but a bit more mature, edgier and uptempo. It’s a bona fide banger and should do damage on radio and the charts. I especially like the raspy and growly delivery during portions of the bop. Shawn’s becoming a man ya’ll 🙂
Give it a listen below.
