Shawn Mendes is pulling back the curtain and revealing his creative process with a series of cryptic social posts teasing a new single, “Wonder.”
“WHAT IS #WONDER,” he tweeted and pinned early Wednesday morning. The artist also changed his Twitter and Instagram avatars to pure white.
Soon after the “Señorita” singer posted a 90-second teaser video, giving fans an ornate panoramic tour of his shambled urban apartment. The lens rests on Mendes laying on a mattress below a piano, working the keys to existential lyrics:
“You have a million different faces that can never understand.
You’ve been a million different places, so give yourself a chance to get lost in wonderland.”
As light pours into the dark apartment, the viewers follows a pair of birds on a deep sea beach journey into black.
This was only the tip of the pop star’s tease. Mendes shared the album’s official website that gives fans a further panoramic view of his sallow apartment.
The single “Wonder” is due out October 2, with the album arriving on December 4, according to Mendes.
