July 2, 2021 - GRAMMY®-winning, multi-Platinum band Imagine Dragons unveil their new single
“Wrecked,” released today via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope. Additionally, the band announced the arrival
of their forthcoming fifth studio album, Mercury - Act 1, set for release on September 3, 2021. Imagine
Dragons teamed up with esteemed producer Rick Rubin to create Mercury - Act 1, a candid album that
abandons metaphorically charged lyrics and instead embraces emotional extremities, holding nothing
back
“Wrecked” was written by lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, Wayne Sermon, Ben McKee & Daniel Platzman
and produced by Imagine Dragons. “Wrecked” was mixed in Spatial Audio and is accompanied by a new
lyric video
The song is a powerful and raw outpouring about grief, loss, and moving forward. Reynolds started
writing the song shortly after losing his sister-in-law, Alisha Durtschi Reynolds, to cancer.
“She was the brightest light. A beacon of joy and strength for everyone she met. Her sudden passing has
shaken me in ways that I still am unable to express. I was with her and my brother when she passed, and
it was the first time in my life that I had witnessed death in this way. It sealed into my mind the fragility
of life and finality of this all. I’ve watched my brother face something that no one should have to. But
I’ve also seen his faith bring him hope in a future with her. I can only hope for the same,” Reynolds says.

“This song was my way of dealing with it all, as music has always been my refuge. No longer being a man
of fervent faith, I can only hope that she hears it somewhere in a place where she is healed and no
longer in pain. This song is my wish for an eternity with those that I love.” 
The emotional intimacy of “Wrecked” continues to provide a glimpse into what fans can expect from
Mercury - Act 1, the band’s first new music since their 2018 album Origins. Billboard revered that the
recent releases of “Follow You” and “Cutthroat” marked the band’s return “with soaring ambition
intact.” On launch day, both singles will be available in Spatial Audio.
“Follow You,” released March 12, reached No. 1 on both Mediabase’s Alternative Radio chart and
Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart. It marked the band’s quickest ascent to the top of
the Billboard chart, surpassing the seven-week climb for “Natural” in 2018 and eight-week climb for
“Believer” in 2017. “Follow You” is a love song written by vocalist Dan Reynolds upon re-marrying his
wife after the couple had separated. “I wanted [the song] to represent a love that is realistic. One where
love isn’t perfect, but it endures,” Reynolds said. The single’s accompanying music video, featuring Rob
McElhenney & Kaitlin Olson of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, offered a cheeky visual companion
piece to fans and caught the attention of press. The video has amassed over 30 million views to date
“Cutthroat” was released in conjunction with “Follow You” and “invites head-banging in line with its
jittery, pseudo-industrial stomp,” Billboard wrote after its release. The gritty, cinematic video for
“Cutthroat” stars Olivia Munn growing increasingly agitated at the DMV and visually depicts the song’s
frenetic energy
