Shawn Mendes has dropped his latest single, “When You’re Gone”. The track was inspired by the end of his relationship with ex-girlfriend Camila Cabello.
The “Stitches” hitmaker released the song on Friday. The 23-year-old musician told entertainment outlet Extra TV that he wrote the song a month after he and Cabello split.
“A month later, you kind of start having all the memories of things that happened, and all the memories of so many amazing things….And I was writing about that,” Mendes said.
When asked if the new single means fans can expect a new album Shawn said, “To be honest with you, I’m not sure because I think I’m about to go on tour. And a lot of the music that I make gets inspired by touring. And I get to go on and kind of see what people react by and how it makes people feel. So then I get off tour and in those little breaks in-between is when I start making the album.”
