On the heels of “Enemy,” which has topped the Alternative Radio chart for the past five weeks, Imagine Dragons unveil their new single, “Bones,” the first new music from their forthcoming release Mercury – Act 2. A spirited examination of life and death, the song explodes with an infectious chorus that celebrates the intangible spark that ignites our beings. Listen to “Bones” HERE and view the lyric video HERE.
“‘Bones’ is a reflection of my constant obsession with the finality and fragility of life,” says Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds. “I’m always in search of some evidence that will convince me that there is more to come – that life is truly eternal in some sense. Having yet to find that, I try to at least dream of what conquering death would feel like in a song.”
The song was produced by Swedish songwriting/production duo Mattman & Robin (Nick Jonas, Celeste), who also helmed “Enemy” and two additional tracks on Imagine Dragons’ new album, Mercury – Act 1 (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope). “Bones” was mixed by 14-time GRAMMY winner Serban Ghenea.
The GRAMMY®-winning, multi-Platinum band will give “Bones” its live performance debut during their Mercury World Tour, which comes to Milton Keynes Stadium MK June 18th. View itinerary HERE. Tickets for the headline run are available on Ticketmaster.com.
“Enemy” has racked up more than 1.24 billion combined global streams across two versions (including a collaboration with GRAMMY-nominated, East Atlanta-based rapper J.I.D). The song continues to rank in the Top 5 on Global Spotify and Amazon Music. In the States, “Enemy” is rapidly ascending at Top 40 radio after claiming the No. 1 spot at the Alternative format for the past five weeks. The song is currently #11* at both Top 40 and Hot AC radio.
