The next era for Shawn Mendes is looking bright and sunny, as we can see in the trailer for his upcoming fourth studio album, “Wonder.”
The multi-platinum singer-songwriter will be releasing his next album on December 4, 2020, via Island Records. The announcement was made via a trailer that also serves as the “Intro” to the title track.
The short preview finds a pair of birds landing on the window sill of an apartment, where Mendes can be seen playing the soft opening tune of his song on the piano while lying down. The birds are identified as swallows, which you can see tattooed on the singer’s hand.
Curious about the light that has just arrived at his artsy home, Shawn gets up, walks over to the window, and gets blinded by the sudden burst of sunlight right after he mentions, “Wonderland.” As the mellow instrumental dissolves into an intense outburst of synthetics, the video also puts the focus back on the swallows, now flying above a paradise by the ocean. The trailer ends showing two dates: October 2nd, the day the full version of Wonder arrives, and December 4th, which is his album launch.
Apart from the Narnia-like trailer, the “Stitches” hitmaker also took to social media and sent a handwritten letter to his fans.
“I’ve missed you all so much! I know it’s been a really scary year for everyone so I’m sending buckets of love to all of you x I wrote an album. It’s called ‘Wonder,'” Shawn wrote.
“It really feels like a piece of me has been written down on paper and recorded into song. I tried to be as real and as honest as I’ve ever been. It’s a world and a journey and a dream and an album I’ve been wanting to make for a really long time. I absolutely love it. Thank you for being by my side for so many years. I love you all so much This is the introduction to the album out Dec 4th, and the first single ‘Wonder’ is out this Friday. I hope you can listen front to back!”

‘Wonder’ follows Shawn Mendes’ self-titled 2018 album, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 Chart and peaked at #1 on iTunes in more than 80 countries upon release. As one of the top best-selling album debuts of the said year, it would be a challenge to live up to its success. However, from the first glimpse at the new album, it seems like we’re on the way to a wonderful paradise.
