After taking a long break since 2018, Imagine Dragons is returning to the music scene with two new songs titled “Follow You” and “Cutthroat”. Both new song has uploaded a lyrics video on YouTube platform. Both songs will be released today via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope and mark the first new music from the GRAMMY-winning, multi-Platinum band since Origins, their 2018 album.
“Follow You,” which was produced by Joel Little, is a love song full of lysergic guitar and intricate arrangements. Vocalist Dan Reynolds wrote the track during a turning point in his marriage. He was on his way to sign divorce papers when he received a text from his wife so full of clarity that it shook him to his core. The couple postponed their split for the next week – and then forever. “Cutthroat” is a propulsive, punk-leaning anthem about killing the critic inside of you. Imagine Dragons recorded the song with producer Rick Rubin at his Shangri-La studio in Malibu.
“It took walking away from everything to find a lot more clarity and happiness,” explains Dan Reynolds.
The last few years have been heavy for Imagine Dragons, and the world at large. As the band members grappled with the grief of losing close friends and family, alongside other deeply personal struggles, Reynolds announced in December 2019 that he was taking some time away to focus on family and personal growth. Then came the pandemic. Nonetheless, the break proved a source for creative renewal.
