After Shawn Mendes invited his many friends along for the “Something Big” music video, the teen heartthrob has gone back to basics for the clip for “A Little Too Much,” another song from his upcoming debut album, Handwritten. Watch the black-and-white video below:
Accompanied by a pianist and strumming his acoustic guitar in the silence of a deserted theater, Mendes shows off his serious singer-songwriter side in the “A Little Too Much” visual. “Sometimes it all gets a little too much/ But you gotta realize that soon the fog will clear up,” Mendes asserts, sounding wise beyond his 16 years.
“A Little Too Much” is being offered as an instant-grat track with a pre-order of Handwritten, which is due April 28 through Island Records. The album will feature previously released singles “Life of the Party” and “Something Big,” both of which have cracked the Hot 100 chart.
Mendes will be joining Taylor Swift on 24 of her 1989 stadium tour dates this summer. Before that, the Vine sensation will kick off a headlining tour on Feb. 23 in Stockholm, and return to North America on Mar. 4.
