Los Angeles: Imagine Dragons' new album, which was written and produced by the band along with Alex Da Kid in their self-built home studio, will be released on February 17, 2015.
The Las Vegas rock band announced that they would release their sophomore effort, 'Smoke + Mirrors', reported Ace Showbiz. The album, serving as the follow-up to 2012's Grammy-winning 'Night Visions', was written and produced by the Las Vegas band with the help from Alex Da Kid in their self-built home studio.
It will feature 13 new tracks including lead single 'I Bet My Life' and the newly-released 'Gold'. Both songs are available for free download for fans who pre-order the album on iTunes now.
" 'Gold' is one of the last songs written for this album. I came home from tour with my head spinning and decided to run away for a bit to the west coast and reflect/write about the last couple years. If you listen closely to the sample of me whistling into my laptop by the ocean, you can hear a wave that crashed while I was recording it.
"I loved the take because it seemed to crash perfectly in time. It takes me back to that spot every time I hear the song," frontman Dan Reynolds said. Based on the tracks that precede it, 'Smoke + Mirrors' will likely sound different from Imagine Dragons' previous releases. Four new songs are added to the album's deluxe edition that will be released exclusively through Target.
