Collier is set to release his new album ‘Jesse Vol. 4’ on February 29, 2024. They have previously shared the tracks ‘Little Blue’ (ft. Brandi Carlile) and ‘Wherever I Go’ (ft. Lawrence & Michael McDonald). ,
The musician also recently made an appearance on Stormzy’s recent album ‘This Is What I Mean’. This record, released in 2022, was given a four-star rating NME: “With ‘This Is What I Mean’, Stormzy continues to push forward: Again, another goal ticked off that checklist.”
Shawn Mendes last released his album ‘Wonder’ in 2020, and has since been recovering from the cancellation of his ‘Wonder’ world tour due to mental health reasons.
“After being off the road for a few years, I thought I was ready to get back down, but this decision was premature and unfortunately the toll and pressure of the road caught up with me and I reached breaking point. I have gone.” He said at that time.
“After speaking with my team and health professionals, I need to take some time to heal and care for myself and my mental health first and foremost. I promise to let you know as soon as there are more updates.”
