New music alert! GRAMMY-nominated multi-Platinum singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes has released his latest single, “Summer of Love,” alongside Tainy via Island Records. The track was produced by multi-award-winning Producer/artist Tainy and NEON16. You can listen to “Summer of Love” here!
“I hope this song makes people feel free, free from the weight of life, even if just for a moment,” said 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.”
Recorded in Majorca, the official video was directed by Matty Peacock, who was previously part of directing the music video to Shawn Mendes song “Wonder,” along with videos for Selena Gomez, Khalid, Billie Eilish, and many others.
In regard to the track, 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.”
