Multi-platinum singer Shawn Mendes has posted a brand new music video for his hit "Mercy." "Mercy" comes as the second single off of his upcoming album Illuminate, which is due out September 23rd via Island Records.
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.
