Shawn Mendes just brought a whole new meaning to the word “teaser.” On Monday, March 28, he gave fans a taste of his new single “When You’re Gone” with a TikTok video demonstrating his shirtless moonwalking skills.

Who do I call when I’m like f-king, on the edge? “, He said, describing the themes he covers on the track. “I think it was the reality that hit me, ‘Oh, I’m all alone now.’ And I hate that. It’s my reality, you know?
The new teaser came just before Mendes unveiled the “When You’re Gone” cover, which features her fuzzy figure mixed with a rainbow of warm-toned stripes. “Loved the art so much I had to make it the official artwork,” he wrote of the cover on Instagram, explaining that it was made by a fan. “You guys inspire me.”
