There is absolutely nothing holding back to release a new song. Although he is currently busy gearing up for his "Illuminate World Tour", the 18-year-old singer plans to release a track titled "Holdin' Me Back" this week which is believed to be on April 20.

He took to Instagram on Monday, April 17 to tease fans with two photos, including a silhouette of him holding a guitar. Both pictures are blurry with blue light illuminating on the background. In the caption he wrote, "There's Nothing #HoldinMeBack."

Fans have since flooded the posts' comment sections with love confessions as they are all anticipating the new song release. A fan commented, "Wowww new song, can't wait." Another fan gushed, "I'm so ready for this!" In addition, a snippet of the new track has been all over social media, so fans couldn't be more excited.

There's still no confirmation whether the song would be featured on his upcoming album. Shawn's latest album is "" which was released in 2016. In a recent interview, the teenage pop star said, "Things are getting a little more urban feeling. I'm getting more into that type of feel while still staying singer/songwriter. It's interesting."

He also revealed that he had written "a ton" of new materials. No wonder fans expect the follow-up album to arrive this year. "It's still so new, I'm not exactly sure where things will go. The best part of music these days is you're not locked down to any specific genre. You can follow where your heart and your musical sense takes you," Shawn added.
