  • Imagine Dragons Releases New Album “Mercury - Act 2”: Streaming

  • American alt-rock band Imagine Dragons, consisting of Dan Reynolds (vocals). Wayne Sermon (guitar), Ben McKee (bass) and Daniel Platzman (drums), released their sixth studio album “Mercury - Act 2” on July 1, 2022.
    The album is a sequel to the fifth studio album “Mercury – Act 1”, which was released in September 2021.
    The album was packaged with the previous album and released as a double album titled “Mercury – Acts 1 & 2”.
    “Mercury – Act 2” comprises 18-track, featuring guest appearance from American singer-songwriter Cory Henry.
    “Mercury – Acts 1 & 2” has two variations on a single theme and pays homage to the life and loss that frontman Dan Reynolds has experienced over the past few years.
    “Mercury – Act 1 is focused on the immediacy of death. What does that sound like? What does that feel like? Mercury — Act 2 is focused on the process that comes after,” Dan Reynolds said in a statement. “So it's the coping, the waking up and life has to continue on. When you've lost someone you love, life continues. This album is about loss, grief, and life. I think throwing life in there is so important because there is a lot of joy to this record. It's about being present.”

    Dan Reynolds told Apple Music, “One thing we saw very early on in the recording process was the fact that this couldn't be one record. There were two different directions, two stories being told, and two timelines. We had songs that I wrote right after my best friend took his life and right after my sister passed away—you know, grieving songs. And then we had songs that were written, because of COVID, almost three years later, when I was in a totally different place. I had a different story to tell.”
    The band worked with legendary producer Rick Rubin on the album.
    Dan Reynolds said, “One of the things that has been so inspiring to me working with Rick is I have been trying to refine spirituality and belief. When the rug is pulled out on you with religion, I was left with nothing. It made me trust no one. Any story anybody told me, it was a ghost story. I've been trying to refine believing in deeper things, unexplainable things. I'm trusting where I feel honesty. Rick is honest.”
    Rick Rubin said, “They're wildly sophisticated in their production ability, in their playing, and in their writing—this glut of greatness.”
