Imagine Dragons announce new album 'Origins' due out on November 9
Just 16 months after their double-platinum, Grammy-nominated album 'Evolve', the Las Vegas-based pop rockers are back with their fourth LP 'Origins', set for a November 9 release.
Last year, Imagine Dragons took the world by storm with their platinum-selling album 'Evolve', which scored the Vegas-based pop-rock quartet a nomination for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album.
Riding the wave of success, Imagine Dragons have now announced a follow up to 'Evolve'. Titled 'Origins', the album marks the fourth studio LP for Dragons and is set for a November 9 release via KIDinaKORNER/Polydor Records.
'Origins' was conceived as a sister album to Evolve continuing its predecessor’s sonic explorations, Imagine Dragons said in a statement. “It’s about seeking new ground but also appreciating your roots,” says frontman Dan Reynolds. “When we create, we create with no boundaries, no rules. We find it thrilling to make music that feels different and new to us.”
Imagine Dragons joined forces with producers Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), Mattman & Robin (Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen), and John Hill (Florence + the Machine) to sculpt the "kaleidoscopic and kinetically charged sound" of 'Origins'. Pre-orders for the album are ongoing here.
Previously released tracks 'Zero' and 'Natural' are among the 12 songs (15 on the deluxe edition) on the forthcoming album. Those who pre-order will receive instant downloads of the two Origins tracks. 'Natural' marked the Dragons' fourth straight No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, whereas 'Zero' famously featured on the sequel to Disney's 'Wreck-It Ralph', 'Ralph Breaks the Internet'. also recently shared a new lyric video for 'Zero,' delivering a flurry of memes and other 21st century internet culture references.
