Shawn Mendes premiered today a brand new song from his forthcoming self-titled third studio album, which is hitting stores on May 25th.

"Youth", a collaboration with R&B singer Khalid, first exclusively premiered at 12 p.m EST on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 show before making its way onto all digital platforms. "Youth" is track number 11 on the upcoming Shawn Mendes LP and it's the "most important song" on the set. The Canadian singer-songwriter recently revealed: "I was touring around Europe when the events of Manchester and London happened, it was very overwhelming. I wanted to write something but it had to be about the feeling for us generation when one of these things happens. So I wrote a song about our youth, a feeling that can’t be taken away from us.

This song is just... too much. My heart literally aches. How can Shawn write such beautiful songs? His talent just amazes me. "Youth" is an anthem and "Youth" has potential to be iconic TIMELESS song.
