Mendes, who’s now best known for his hit “Stitches,” put out a teaser video with the song’s announcement just before midnight, and Cabello posted a message about recording the track to Instagram.

“I Know What You Did Last Summer” will appear on Mendes’ forthcoming Handwritten Revisited reissue, and in a recent interview Cabello revealed the song was written while they were backstage at Taylor Swift’s 1989 tour.
“We wrote this together backstage at one of Taylor’s 1989 shows out of a random jam session,” she tweeted last week.
