With his new album, ‘Illuminate’ set for release on September 23, internet sensation Shawn Mendes teases his fans with his new single, ‘Mercy’. It’s a deeply emotional track destined to pull on your heart strings. It’s a ballad with Shawn’s huge vocals and a multi-layered instrumental track featuring guitar and piano.

It’s a love song that will have you caught between humming along and crying – it’s moving and beautiful, and we hope it says a lot about what to expect from ‘Illuminate’.

‘Mercy’ follows the smash hits ‘Treat You Better‘, which topped the charts in over 25 countries, and album tracks, ‘Ruin‘, and ‘Three Empty Words‘.

Shawn Mendes is set to come to the UK next month ahead of the release of ‘Illuminate’. You can stream ‘Mercy’ on Spotify, and preorder ‘Illuminate’ from iTunes.
