Canadian singer and songwriter, Shawn Mendes, has released a new song ‘What The Hell Are We Dying For?’.

The song with a powerful message behind its lyrics was dropped amid the wildfires in Canada.

He announced his new song hours before it was finally released.

“Smoke in the air/ the city’s burning down/ I want to speak/ but I don’t make a sound,” Mendes croons in the new song. “Locked in my mind, you’re all I think about./ I want to save us, but I don’t know how.”

Shawn Mendes explained the inspiration behind the song in a tweet Newshuntermag.com has seen.

“Started writing this song yesterday morning with my friends in upstate New York & finished it only a few hours ago…Felt so important to me to share with you guys in real time ♥️♥️”

Canada has been affected by an ongoing record-setting series of wildfires starting from March 2023 and increasing around June. It has affected all Canadian provinces and territories except Nunavut. The 2023 wildfire season is the worst in Canada’s modern history.
