Imagine Dragons Drops New Music Video for “I Don't Like Myself”
- American pop rock band Imagine Dragons, consisting of Dan Reynolds (vocals). Wayne Sermon (guitar), Ben McKee (bass) and Daniel Platzman (drums), has dropped a new music video for “I Don't Like Myself” directed by Matt Eastin.
The song is included on their sixth studio album “Mercury - Act 2”, which was released back in July.
It was written by Dan Reynolds, Wayne Sermon, Ben McKee, Daniel Platzman, and Marco Borrero. Produced by MAG.
Alongside the music video release, the band announced that they have partnered with Crisis Text Line and encourages fans to support the organization and their work through fundraisers available across the band's social media platforms.
Crisis Text Line is a not-for-profit organization providing free, high-quality text-based mental health support and crisis intervention throughout the United States and Puerto Rico, in English and Spanish.
Dan Reynolds said, “I wrote this song at a very low point for me. I struggled quite a bit with self-love over the years. I was in a deep rut of depression and turned to music for refuge. I've since spent many years in therapy working on self-love. I believe therapy is the reason I am still alive today. If it's ever a question of whether or not you should go to therapy. The answer is always yes. Stay alive.”
- “We're grateful to join forces with Imagine Dragons to bring awareness to the growing mental health crisis," said Dena Trujillo, CEO, Crisis Text Line-a nonprofit organization. "Our research shows that music is the most frequently mentioned coping mechanism for young people in emotional distress. 'I Don't Like Myself' will bring comfort to many, as it embodies the hope and empathy that we all need at different times in our lives. Our volunteer Crisis Counselors are here 24/7 to provide free and confidential support to anyone in need-a crisis to you is a crisis to us.”
The organization's services are available 24 hours a day, every day. Those seeking support can text MUSIC to 741741 to reach a live, trained volunteer Crisis Counselor in English. Text HOLA to 741741 or text to 442-AYUDAME in WhatsApp for Spanish. Donate here.
