Shawn Mendes has joined the team behind the Life Is Strange TV adaptation.

After announcing the series in 2016, Legendary Television and dj2 Entertainment has finally followed up with an update regarding its take of the Square Enix game by bringing in the 'Summer of Love' singer-songwriter, along with Andrew Gertler, for the show's official soundtrack.

They've also gotten production company Anonymous Content (the team behind True Detective and 13 Reasons Why) on board for the project.

Life Is Strange follows the emotional story of photography enthusiast and high school senior Max Caulfield as she discovers her supernatural ability to go back in time, making every choice she makes enact the butterfly effect. She saves and reunites with her best friend Chloe Price, and together they wind up in the middle of a mysterious maze following the disappearance of a fellow student.
