Imagine Dragons unveil first new music since 2018. Two new songs, “Follow You” and “Cutthroat” out today PLUS lyric videos for both!
This is the first new music since the band’s 2018 album, “Origins”. Over the last few years the band members grappled with the grief of losing close friends and family, alongside other deeply personal struggles, Reynolds announced in December 2019 that he was taking some time away to focus on family and personal growth. Then came the pandemic. Nonetheless, the break proved a source for creative renewal.
Lead singer Dan Reynolds said: “It took walking away from everything to find a lot more clarity and happiness.”
The first single “Follow You” lead singer Dan Reynolds wrote during a turning point in his marriage. He was on his way to sign divorce papers when he received a text from his wife so full of clarity that it shook him to his core. The couple postponed their split for the next week – and then forever.
The second single “Cutthroat” has been described as a propulsive, punk-leaning anthem about killing the critic inside of you. The band recorded the song with producer Rick Rubin at his Shangri-La studio in Malibu.
