Vinyl LP pressing. 2016 release, the highly anticipated sophomore album from Canadian singer/songwriter and multi-platinum recording artist Shawn Mendes. Illuminate is the follow-up to his debut album, Handwritten (2015). Illuminate’s first single “Treat You Better,” reached Top 20 at pop radio and entered the Top 20 on the Shazam Global chart. Mendes first started posting cover videos on the popular social video app Vine in 2013 and gained millions of views and followers in a few months, becoming well known for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs. Artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered Mendes online in January 2014, bringing him to Island Records where he eventually signed.
