Shawn Mendes announces first single from debut album and shares cover art

Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes has finally revealed the surprise he's been teasing for the past week and confirmed that his highly anticipated new single is due to be released in a matter of days. 

'Something Big' is the name of the heartthrob's first single from his upcoming debut studio album and he announced via Twitter that it will drop very soon on November 10. In addition to sharing the exciting news, the rising star also uploaded the official cover art, which can be seen below.

Speaking to MTV News today (October 29) about the song, Mendes explained that it's very upbeat and positive, and he's proud of it: "The song was written on our tour bus over the summer, and it’s meant to be a very positive song about good things happening to people, I don’t want to give away too much but the title definitely describes the concept and sound of the song."

He added: "When we wrote it, it just felt right because it really speaks on how things have happened so fast for me, and how in general good things can happen to anyone if they just stay positive.”
