Shawn Mendes is working through his very public relationship with singer Camila Cabello with his new single, “When You’re Gone”.
Mendes called the rhythm layer therapeutic and said that it was about “the essence of working out the break-up of a relationship and what it is and memories and all these feelings start to flow.
He added: “I think after the break-up I realized how much I was protecting myself from this person and that I needed to be able to protect that part of myself as well. And this is a huge moment and I don’t think you really get to see those weak spots are those sensitive places that you have to think about and love until they are open. “
The hook of the song contains the lyrics “It’s hard for me to let go of you, I’m just trying to hold on …”. Asked if he was holding on tight, Mendes replied: “No, I’m not holding my head.
Mendes and Cabello announced the end of approx. his three-year relationship in November 2021 on Instagram.
Although it’s always nerve-wracking for the 23-year-old to release music, he said he was pleased that fans were connected to the song, which was released on Thursday by Island Records, which is part of Universal Music Group (UMG.AS).
In June, Mendes will launch his “Wonder: The World Tour” 86 in Portland, Oregon. The Canadian said that travel is a creative life force that drives the part of him that is able to create music and be artistic, which is something he shows in his music video for “When You’re Gone”.
“I just wanted to film this and put it out to be like, guys, this is what it is. You know, it’s a minute. “
