Shawn Mendes Releases “Summer of Love” With Tainy
Grammy nominated multi-platinum singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes has released his new single “Summer Of Love” with Tainy via Island Records/Universal Music Canada. The track is produced by multi award-winning producer and artist Tainy and NEON16 (Listen to “Summer Of Love” here).
The official video was shot in Majorca, Spain and directed by Matty Peacock, who previously directed Shawn’s “Wonder” video, as well as videos for Selena Gomez, Billie Eilish and Khalid, and others.
“I hope this song makes people feel free, free from the weight of life, even if just for a moment,” says Mendes.
“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 said: “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.”
Most recently, Mendes teamed up with Colombian singer-songwriter, musician, and producer Camilo to release “KESI (Remix).” Last year he also landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 with his critically acclaimed fourth studio album, Wonder, marking his fourth consecutive No. 1 album release.
