Imagine Dragons Bring Paintings to Life in “Shots”

Imagine Dragons’ new album Smoke + Mirrors is about to be released and in honor of that, the Las Vegas based band have released the music video for their newest single, “Shots.”

The music video is inspired by the paintings of Tim Cantor, a surrealist painter who created the album art for the group’s upcoming sophomore record as well as other collaborations.

Watch the video below and go for a trippy ride.

“Shots” joins lead single “I Bet My Life” and previously announced songs “Summer,” “Polaroid,” “I’m So Sorry,” and “Gold” on Smoke + Mirrors which will be released Tuesday, Feb. 17 through Interscope Records.

Imagine Dragons also recently announced their North American tour in support of the new record which will begin on June 3 in Portland, OR and conclude on Aug. 1 in Boise at the Taco Bell Arena. The band will be supported by Metric and Halsey.

Imagine Dragons Give Us “Gold” in New Video

With the massive success of the first single, “I Bet My Life,” Imagine Dragons are back with the music video for another new song off of their upcoming new album.

This music video unlike the last, is more simple with the band performing in a room with a lot of cool lights which changes several times throughout the performance; the video for “I Bet My Life” felt like they just got a short film and decided to lay the track over it.

Check out the video for the song below.

“I Bet My Life” and “Gold” will be featured on Imagine Dragons’ sophomore album, Smoke + Mirrors. The upcoming record is set to be released on Feb. 17 through Island Records. Pre-orders for it have been available since last month for those interested.

Imagine Dragons Give Fans Some “Gold”


Imagine Dragons gave fans a piece of “gold” last night when they released the second song from their upcoming sophomore record, Smoke + Mirrors.

The song which was revealed to be titled “Gold” yesterday afternoon on Twitter, made its debut on the web at midnight (eastern time). Unlike their previous single, the ultra-catchy “I Bet My Life,” this one seems a little odd beginning with some whistling which seems to be used quite a bit in the general song.

For us, it sounds a little more like something we would hear on a Fitz and the Tantrums song than the Imagine Dragons tracks we’ve become familiar with over the last two years.

Listen to “Gold” below and tell us what you think.

Smoke + Mirrors will be released on Feb. 17, 2015. The tracklist for the follow-up to the group’s debut record can be seen below as well.


1. “Shots”

2. “Gold”

3. “Smoke and Mirrors”

4. “I’m So Sorry”

5. “I Bet My Life”

6. “Polaroid”

7. “Friction”

8. “It Comes Back To You”

9. “Dream”

10. “Trouble”

11. “Summer”

12. “Hopeless Opus”

13. “The Fall”

Imagine Dragons Announce New Album Info


Imagine Dragons dropped a new song back in late October, and now the Las Vegas band have announced the release date and name for their upcoming new record.

Taking to Twitter, like they have in the past for breaking new, they announced their upcoming new album will be titled Smoke + Mirrors and gave fans the confirmation that the new album will be out in early 2015.

The band had headed home to record the new record which began with 50 demo tracks and eventually dwindled it down to the tracks that would eventually come together to form Smoke + Mirrors.

Like their tweet says, the record’s pre-orders will officially begin tonight at 9 p.m. PST (midnight for those of us who live on the East Coast).

For those who order the record during its pre-orders will instantly be given a download of another new song from the record; a song titled “Gold.”

“Gold” will most likely join previously released and current lead single, “I Bet My Life,” on the record. For those not familiar with “I Bet My Life,” it’s the one that they performed on the American Music Awards last month and is currently being used as background music on a couple of commercials including a car commercial.

Smoke + Mirrors will be released on Feb. 17, 2015. It will also be the follow-up to their debut and breakthrough record, 2012’s Night Visions.
