Shawn Mendes' New Song 'Youth' Was Inspired by The Manchester Attacks

Shawn Mendes has opened up about his latest single “Youth” and how it was inspired by the Manchester Attacks.

The 19-year-old singer/songwriter explains to Zane Lowe in a Beats 1 radio interview, “I was in London and I was very close to all that time, right after the Manchester thing. In London there was the attack on the bridge. And I remember that day thinking like, ‘OK, I gotta text him [Khalid]. When I texted him, I said when we get together, we have to make a statement.”

He adds, “We have to move. We have to write about what’s going on in life and how the youth is feeling because I think we have the voice to do that.”
