Shawn Mendes releases new song on climate change following Canadian wildfiresJune 11, 2023Los Angeles, June 11 (IANS) Singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes again sang about climate change in the wake of Canadian wildfires.The singer-songwriter released a new song called ‘What the Hell Are We Dying For?’ and said he wrote the song this week amid the Canadian wildfires that’ve sent a blaze of smoke throughout many areas of the United States, causing air quality issues, reports People magazine.”Started writing this song yesterday morning with my friends in upstate New York & finished it only a few hours ago…felt important to me to share with you guys in real time,” wrote Mendes, 24, on Instagram, noting that he’s making a donation to the Canadian Red Cross alongside the song’s release.As per People, the track, produced by Mendes and Mike Sabath and co-written by the pair with Scott Harris and Eddie Benjamin, was released with a cover image taken this week of the New York City skyline covered in orange smog from the wildfire smoke.”Smoke in the air, the city’s burnin’ down, I wanna speak, but I don’t make a sound,” sings the Grammy nominee in the pop-rock ballad, referencing the situation. “Locked in my mind, you’re all I think about I wanna save us, but I don’t know how.”People further states that while the song seems to be about the wildfires and climate change at large, some of its lyrics appear to nod toward the end of a relationship – leading fans to wonder if Mendes is singing about a possible breakup from Camila Cabello following their rumoured reconciliation.”If we don’t love like we used to / If we don’t care like we used to / What the hell are we dying for? / If it doesn’t cut like it used to / If you’re not mine and I’m not yours / What the hell are we dying for?” sings the musician in the track’s chorus.–IANSaa/kvd
