Imagine Dragons announce forthcoming double album ‘Mercury – Acts 1 & 2’, due out on 01 July 2022.
The multi-Platinum band have also revealed the official music video for new single ‘Bones’. Drawing inspiration from Michael Jackson’s seminal 1983 ‘Thriller’ video with a sardonic Wallstreet twist, the clip was directed by visual pioneer Jason Koenig and stars frontman Dan Reynolds.
He commented, “It definitely served as the inspiration for the ‘Bones’ video…I’ve always loved that ‘Thriller’ was both scary and playful. I didn’t know as a kid if I wanted to watch it again or not for fear of the ensuing nightmares, but I always came back for more with my eyes half-closed.”
“The idea of punishing Wall Street with a zombie infection felt like an enjoyable time. And it was.”
Produced by Swedish duo Mattman & Robin, ‘Bones’ gives fans a first taste of what to expect from the forthcoming double album release.
