Following the success of his second number one album, 2016's Illuminate, Shawn Mendes, returned with MTV Unplugged. This is the first session of the long-running music channel's planned reboot of the classic '90s performance series. Recorded live in September 2017 at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles, the intimate acoustic session finds Mendes running through a handful of his most-loved songs. Included are such cuts as "There's Nothing Holdin' Me Back," "Stitches," and "Three Empty Words."
