The track was written by Shawn Mendes, Jon Bellion, Jason Cornet, Amy Allen, Scott Harris, Clyde Lawrence, and Jordan Cohen.

“What was really amazing was that Lyle as a character only sings, so I felt really comfortable playing his character,” Shawn Mendes said. “I was able to do what I do best, plus I relate to his story and his character so much it felt natural. When I was approached to help make the music for the adaptation of such a classic book, it was a no brainer and just such a fun departure from what I am used to.”
The film and the soundtrack is set to be released on October 7, 2022.
