Las Vegas rockers Imagine Dragons have released a brand-new song entitled ‘Machine’ via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. The new track is the third song available in advance of the band’s fourth studio album, Origins, which – as uDiscover Music previously reported – is out on 9 November. You can hear Machine below here.
Origins was conceived as a sister album to the band’s third album, Evolve, and it continues its predecessor’s sonic explorations. “It’s about seeking new ground but also appreciating your roots,” says lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, whose bandmates include guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman. “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 sound of Origins. With the band artfully blending rock, hip-hop, pop, and folk, the album is etched in inventive textures that never distract from an essential element of Imagine Dragons: lyrics that speak to a sometimes-painful self-awareness, but ultimately uplift and inspire.
Origins is released 16 months after Evolve, which has been certified Gold in the UK and entered the chart at No. 3, and is now certified double platinum in the US. Evolve was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned three huge hits: ‘Believer,’ ‘Thunder’ – which scored a Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Grammy nomination – and ‘Whatever It Takes’.
Aside from ‘Machine’, Origins also includes ‘Zero’ which features in Walt Disney Records’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack album, Ralph Breaks The Internet, which is available digitally on 16 November. The film is set to open in US cinema on 21 November 2018. In the movie, video-game bad guy Ralph struggles with his evolving friendship with fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz.
Origins is out on 9 November and can be bought here.
