Imagine Dragons' fifth studio album, Mercury – Act 1, is available everywhere, along with a special Target exclusive CD featuring alternative artwork and an exclusive poster.
The band teamed up with producer Rick Rubin for the project. Frontman Dan Reynolds said, “This whole record is about high highs and low lows, and that’s where the name Mercury came from, so that’s what this record is really about, is dealing with grief, dealing with losing people, and also celebrating life.”
Earlier this week, “Demons” by Imagine Dragons was certified Diamond (10x Platinum) by the RIAA making them the only band to have three RIAA Diamond singles – “Radioactive” (14x Platinum) and “Believer” (10x Platinum) are the others in that category. “Radioactive” is also tied for the highest single certification with Lil Nas X‘s “Old Town Road” and Gotye‘s “Somebody That I Used To Know.”
