Shawn Mendes Performs Cover of Frank Valli's “Can't Take My Eyes Off You” on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge
- Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes appeared on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge to perform “Can't Take My Eyes Off You” and “Wonder”.
The performance was recorded at Henson Studios in Los Angeles.
“Can't Take My Eyes Off You” was released by Frankie Valli of the Four Seasons in 1967. The song reached No.2 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It was written by Bob Crewe and Bob Gaudio.
“Wonder” is the lead single off of his upcoming fourth studio album of the same name. It was released on October 2, 2020.
The new album is set to be released on December 4, 2020. It is his first album since 2018's “Shawn Mendes”.
Shawn Mendes told Radio.Com of the song, “I feel like “Wonder” is in a lot of ways me just reflecting on my life, and life in general… I've never really done that before… probably because I didn't have the mental capacity and clarity to even be able to reflect, and also probably because I was really scared of what people would think if I started to reflect in my music. Here's a real sense of freedom that this song oozes out to me, that makes me love it even more.”
In support of the new album, a feature-length documentary titled “Shawn Mendes: In Wonder” directed by Grant Singer will be released on Netflix on November 23rd.
