Shawn Mendes has enjoyed leading a “normal” life over the last few months.

The 22-year-old singer admitted he went into “panic” mode when isolation measures were imposed to slow the spread of coronavirus earlier this year because he worried he wouldn’t be able to make music, but he’s grown to love his ordinary existence with girlfriend Camila Cabello.

Shawn – who has been living at the ‘Havana’ hitmaker’s home in Miami – told ‘Tonight Show’ host Jimmy Fallon: “It’s funny. When I got here, it was like the beginning of the album process and I was like in a full panic state.

“I was like, ‘There’s no way I’m going to make music. This is going to be impossible.

“But like a week goes by and you start cooking eggs in the morning, you start doing laundry and taking dogs for walks, and you like have a coffee mug that you use the same one every day, and it just becomes like really nice.”

The ‘Wonder’ singer is aware the tasks might sound “so normal for everyone else” but explained it was “very abnormal” for him.

He added: “I’ve basically been living in hotel rooms since I was 15. So it’s been nice, man, it’s been really nice.”

Shawn will release a new album in December and Camila recently praised his recent work.

Sharing a snippet from the video to ‘Wonder’ ahead of the track’s release, she wrote on Instagram: the world could use some magic, beauty, and Wonder always, but especially right now. @shawnmendes what a gorgeous gift to the world,” she wrote in the caption. “He’s crafted this album with every last bit of his soul, his spirit, and his essence with the “purest of intentions. My love, I’m so proud of the person you are and I’m so excited for people to see and hear your heart. (sic)”
