Global Pop Star Shawn Mendes Releases His New Single “Summer Of Love” Featuring Tainy
The track is produced by multi-award-winning Producer/artist Tainy and NEON16. ! Shawn also released a new music video alongside the track.
The official video was shot in Majorca, Spain, directed by Matty Peacock, who previously directed Shawn’s “Wonder” video, as well as videos for Selena Gomez, Billie Eilish, and Khalid, among others.
Mendes says: “I hope this song makes people feel free, free from the weight of life, even if just for a moment. The inspiration was getting a few months off to have a real summer with the people I love. My favorite part about creating it was getting the opportunity to work in the studio with Tainy. It was a special experience connecting with him since he’s such an incredible artist and amazing producer.”
Tainy adds: “Working with Shawn was so easy and really organic to be honest. He is a true musician and vocalist but aside from that, the energy he brought to the studio was super genuine so creating feel good music together just flowed. The chemistry is there and you can hear it in the music. SOL (Summer Of Love) has a very “summer vibe” feel, led by main guitars and chords so I just wanted to give it more movement and heavy bass. That paired with Shawn’s vocals made it a perfect fit.”
Last year Shawn landed at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 with his critically acclaimed fourth studio album, Wonder. This marked his fourth consecutive #1 album release.
