Shawn Mendes continues to captivate fans with new music and content even as the end of 2018 approaches. The 20-year-old singer recently released his music video for the popular track ‘Lost In Japan’ and has now dropped two new Spotify singles to add to his collection of music on the streaming platform.
The singles include a more intimate and powerful cover of ‘Use Somebody’ by Kings of Leon and an acoustic version of ‘Lost In Japan.’ Both tracks were released on Nov. 14 and recorded at Spotify Studios in NYC.
The new version of “Lost In Japan” follows the successful release of its remix by Zedd and has allowed fans to hear the song in a different way yet again. The cover of “Use Somebody,” on the other hand, is not something fans were shocked to hear after Mendes had done a mashup of the 2008 track and his single “Treat You Better” back in 2016 on his MTV Unplugged album. This version, however, is more emotional and moving due to the way it was redone.

Mendes has had quite the busy year including many more awards, performances and events. One, most recently, was the panel for Billboard’s Live Music Summit where the ‘Lost In Japan’ singer had the opportunity to sit down with his manager Andrew Gertler and speak about his career. He spoke about Taylor Swift, connecting to an audience, his fans and even some of his fears.
Billboard’s Live Music Summit took place in Beverly Hills on Nov. 13 to recognize and honor artists such as Mendes and John Mayer.
All of this new content has fans excited to see where the singer takes his music and overall career in the upcoming year. In fact, social media has not stopped talking about these two new tracks and both of them are now available to stream on Spotify now.
