Shawn Mendes Shares the Personal Story Behind 'In My Blood'

posted by Kelly Ballhorn -

Shawn Mendes gave his fans exactly what they wanted yesterday with his new emotional, honest and raw single "In My Blood."

It turns out, this was the very first song Shawn wrote the day he really got to work on his new album.

Shawn’s goal with this record was to make it bigger and arena-worthy, inspired by bands like Kings of Leon.

But this song’s subject matter is very personal.

For the first time in his life, roughly a year ago, Shawn began suffering from severe anxiety and its lyrics are a "complete truth" breaking down his experience with it.

"In My Blood" is out now.
