I’ve been through love, loss, new life, grief, and everything in between during the whole period of writing it, and I feel like it’s really a coming of age record. I’ve never been more proud of a body of work, or more excited/nervous for you all to hear it.”

Jeremy Zucker: Cry with you

Indie pop star Jeremy Zucker released a new single Friday, “Cry with you.” Zucker said that he wrote this song while he was living in New York and his friends were in LA. 

“One of my best friends was going through hell, we would facetime every day just for them to cry and vent,” Zucker wrote on Instagram. “One day I blurted out ‘if I can’t be there with you, I’ll just cry with you,’ of course it turned into a song.”

Shawn Mendes: Summer of Love

Pop star Shawn Mendes has dropped a new song and music video after he took some time off this year to spend with his girlfriend, Camila Cabello. The new song, “Summer of Love” features Puerto Rican producer, Tainy. 

“I hope this song makes people feel free, free from the weight of life, even if just for a moment,” Mendes said in a statement. “The inspiration was getting a few months off to have a real summer with the people I love.

“Working with Shawn was so easy and really organic, to be honest. He is a true musician and vocalist but aside from that, the energy he brought to the studio was super genuine so creating feel-good music together just flowed,” said Tainy.
