The GRAMMY-winning band Imagine Dragons have released their fifth studio album, Mercury – Act 1, via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope. Find the album here. A Target exclusive CD featuring alternative artwork and an exclusive poster is also available.
Teaming up with esteemed producer Rick Rubin, Mercury – Act 1 is a candid album that abandons metaphorically charged lyrics and instead embraces emotional extremities, holding nothing back. The title draws inspiration from the word “mercurial.”
“This whole record is about high highs and low lows, and that’s where the name Mercury came from,” says frontman Dan Reynolds in a previously released trailer for Mercury – Act 1. “So that’s what this record is really about, is dealing with grief, dealing with losing people, and also celebrating life.”
Recently, “Demons” by Imagine Dragons was certified Diamond (10x Platinum) by the RIAA making them the only band to have three RIAA Diamond singles – “Radioactive” (14x Platinum) and “Believer” (10x Platinum) are the others in that category. “Radioactive” is also tied for the highest single certification with Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” and Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know.”
The new album marks the band’s first new music since their 2018 album Origins, and features previously released singles “Wrecked”, “Cutthroat” and “Follow You.”
