The video for the track grasps a simple, yet powerful, concept to wrap your head around. The story of the video jumps between scenes of the artist coming up with the music in a dimly-lit rehearsal space and dramatic scenes of him being trapped in a sinking car. Clearly, if you align the lyrics with the traumatic struggle you get a clear-cut metaphor that Shawn Mendes has no control over his situation.

In anticipation of the album release fans can expect some pop-up shops and full-album listening events in New York, Los Angeles, and Toronto.
