Imagine Dragons recently shared the latest preview of their upcoming album, releasing the powerful new song “Wrecked.”
“Wrecked” is the third single from the Grammy-winning band’s fifth album, Mercury – Act 1. “Follow You” and “Cutthroat” were previously released in March.
Mercury – Act 1, the result of a collaboration with legendary producer Rick Rubin, is scheduled for release on September 3.
Speaking about the new song, Dan Reynolds said he wrote it following the death of his sister-in-law Alisha Durtschi Reynolds from cancer.
The Imagine Dragons lead vocalist recalled that it was the first time in his life that he had witnessed death in this way.
“It sealed into my mind the fragility of life and finality of this all,” Reynolds said. “This song was my way of dealing with it all, as music has always been my refuge.”
