Imagine Dragons – “Natural”




July 17th, 2018 — (Santa Monica, CA) — Today multi-platinum, GRAMMY® Award-winning band IMAGINE DRAGONS release a brand-new song entitled “Natural” via KIDinaKORNER / Interscope Records. “Natural” is available via all participating digital retailers HERE. The band will perform the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Thursday, July 19th. “Natural” has been chosen as the anthem of this year’s ESPN college football season.

“Living in a dog-eat-dog world can bring out the worst in you, and sometimes, the best,” says the band’s singer Dan Reynolds. “It would be a lie to tell you I haven’t become somewhat skeptical about some things in the last decade of my life. However, I believe that when you truly learn to love yourself, the judging eyes and hateful words become meaningless. ‘Natural’ is about finding yourself and being willing and able to stand up to whatever adversity comes your way.”

Imagine Dragons’ third studio album, Evolve, has been certified double-platinum within a year of its June 2017 release. Evolve has spent 55 weeks on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, where it currently sits at No. 17. The album is also 12th in the world on Spotify with over 36 million monthly listeners.

Imagine Dragons are currently out on the road for the second leg of their Evolve World Tour, which will stop for two shows at The Forum in Los Angeles on July 21st and 22nd. See all upcoming dates HERE.

ICYMI Released Last Week:

The 1975 – “Love It If We Made It”

Watching a band finally evolve into the most unapologetic versions of themselves if truly a remarkable experience, and The 1975 have succumbed to the honesty. Mixed reviews of their debut single “Give Yourself A Try” will soon find a home at the center of “Love It If We Made It”, an equally reverb-soaked, synth-pop devotion to modernity. “Love It If We Made It” is the July contribution to the band’s fanbase, as the band has promised to drop one single every month leading up to part one of their two-part release in October, entitled A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.


Gonna Be A Smash Hit:

Death Cab For Cutie – “I Dreamt We Spoke Again”

Death Cab’s latest release Thank You For Today is their most ambitious yet, at least that’s what it seems like with not one, but two singles telling us so. Debuting “Gold Rush” earlier this Summer, the band revealed “I Dreamt We Spoke Again” this week, a single playing along with the modern songwriting the band has grown into, while remaining classic DCFC.


Reverb Nation Spotlight:
