Download Mercury Act One Album by Imagine Dragons
American pop rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, consisting of lead singer Dan Reynolds, lead guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman, Imagine Dragons set to their new album project “Mercury Act 1” which will officially arrive on September 3 via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. project.
Mercury Act 1 is the fifth album from American alt-rock band Imagine Dragons, expected to be released in June 2021, and executively produced by legendary producer Rick Rubin. This album is divided into two parts, separated by the story they tell. On March 8th, 2021, the band announced the simultaneous release of “Follow You” and “Cutthroat,” which both act as lead singles for their respective parts of the album. Throughout April, an additional 19 songs appeared on PRO sites BMI and ASCAP, culminating on April 29th, 2021, when six out of eight songs uploaded included Andrew Tolman, a former member of the band from 2008 to 2011.
The band’s roster was finalized before Night Visions‘ release with Daniel Platzman on the drums, Wayne Sermon on guitar, and Ben McKee on bass. Their break-out single, “Radioactive” was essential to putting Vegas on the map musically, citing The Killers before them. The song went on to become an international success, obliterating the record for the most weeks on the Billboard Hot 100 at 87 straight weeks.
It wasn’t until 2015 the band released their sophomore album, Smoke + Mirrors. The album was extremely divergent from their freshman album, characterized by an accentuation of their Rock roots and an internal struggle, later described by Reynolds as being his bout with severe depression.
After a self-imposed hiatus in 2016, the band premiered their third album, Evolve, during Super Bowl LI. As the title suggests, Evolve was seen as another evolution of the band’s sound, with a newfound focus around Pop and EDM. It only took a year for the band to release their fourth full-length album, Origins, characterized as a sister album to Evolve.
Another hiatus from the band–the longest up to this point–saw them taking nearly two years off before releasing their first two singles from their fifth album: Mercury Act 1. They confirmed their new album with a simple Instagram post, which features the album cover. On Friday (July 2), Imagine Dragons are also supposed to release the new track “Wrecked.”
