Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning band Imagine Dragons have released their fourth studio album ‘ORIGINS’ via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records.
‘ORIGINS’ was conceived as a sister album to ‘Evolve’ continuing 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 McKe, 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 kaleidoscopic and kinetically charged 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’ has been released 16 months after Imagine Dragons’ previous album, ‘Evolve’, which was certified double-platinum within a year of its June 2017 release.
‘Evolve’ was nominated for a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album and spawned three #1 Alternative radio hits: ‘Believer’, which topped the Alternative radio chart for 12 weeks and also climbed to #3 at Top 40 radio; ‘Thunder’ which hit #1 at Top 40 and scored a Best Pop Duo/Group Performance Grammy nomination; and ‘Whatever It Takes’, which peaked at #3 at Top 40 radio.
Imagine Dragons are the eighth most-listened-to artist globally on Spotify with over 40 million monthly listeners.
