Grammy-award-winning quartet Imagine Dragons have shared their new music video for ‘Zero’, the end-credit song they wrote and performed for the new movie Ralph Breaks the Internet. The video has been directed by Dave Meyers (Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott) and you can watch it above.
The Las Vegas rockers, whose single ‘Natural’ has spent eight weeks at No. 1 at Alternative radio, appear in the arcade-based video (watch for the Disney Easter Eggs). In the movie, video-game bad guy Ralph struggles with his evolving friendship with fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz.
According to Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds, the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song ‘Zero.’ “They are compelling because they are real to each of us, personally”, he says. “That journey of feeling like nothing and trying to realize and recognize your worth as a human is an important part of life. And given the distorted version of reality kids’ faces online and the expectations that come with it, this struggle is real for so many people right now.”
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Imagine Dragons are set to release their fourth album, Origins, on 9 November via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records.
Origins was conceived as a sister album to Evolve and continues with its predecessor’s sonic explorations. “It’s about seeking new ground but also appreciating your roots,” says lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, whose band mates 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.”
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’.
‘Zero’ will also be featured on 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.
