A new track from Shawn Mendes is three minutes of soothing, acoustic bliss, and whilst it's only a weekday, we can't help but slip into that sleepy Sunday state Mendes fosters so well. Romanticized with amorous verses, with the pop-rock singer’s soft vocals humming all the way through, “Three Empty Words” glows in lustful warmth. Today’s release marks the third single from Mendes’ highly anticipated album, Illuminate, due to drop on September 23rd.

When sinking into the new track, the unique influence of John Mayer’s Continuum is detectable. Opening up on harmonic similarities, the star openly admitted to Fader, "I think John inspired the album more than anybody.”
