Shawn Mendes is having the best week ever, and it’s only Wednesday!

On top of announcing his next single, “Holdin’ Me Back,” he’s also working on his THIRD studio album! Let that sink in for a minute.

The 18-year-old hottie hung out at Billboard to dish on new music, and why songwriting will be a priority on his ‘Illuminate’ world tour:

“We’re trying to plan everything so that there’s time to make music, too,” Shawn spilled. “I’ll be writing and recording a lot on the road. I want to make sure I have a good amount of time to create the next album.”
