Shawn Mendes has shared his new song 'Heartbeat' from the motion picture 'Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile'.
The 24-year-old pop star voices the titular character in Will Speck and Josh Gordon's big-screen adaptation of the classic children's tale, and he's also recorded a number of tracks for the soundtrack.
The first is 'Heartbeat', out now, and the other songs are 'Top of the World', 'Carried Away', 'Take a Look at Us Now', a duet with co-star Javier Bardem, and 'Rip Up the Recipe' with Constance Wu.

The 'Wonder' hitmaker previously admitted it was a challenge making sure he nailed the emotion behind each lyric for the character.
He explained: “The hardest part though is that when you are singing for a film instead of your own album, you really have to ace the nuances of the emotion behind every lyric and every note and match it to how the character will be portraying it on screen. “That was a learning experience.”
The film and soundtrack arrive on October 7.
