It’s been a while since Imagine Dragons made headlines, let alone release any new music. On Monday (Nov. 28), things changed when the Las Vegas-founded band announced the release of a brand new song on Twitter. In a message to fans, they unveiled that the new song would be titled “Levitate” and was a track to tide fans over as they work on their third studio album. The song was specifically written for the upcoming Jennifer Lawrence-Chris Pratt-starring outer space drama, Passengers.
The song is currently available for purchase on iTunes, Apple Music, Google Play, Amazon, and Spotify. A one-minute snippet of the song is featured on the latest trailer for the film which can be seen below.
Passengers stars Lawrence and Pratt as two passengers on a spaceship transporting them to a new life on a new planet. For some unknown and mysterious reason, the pods the two were travelling in open, 90 years before they were due to reach their final destination. Like many films which finds two people stuck in a secluded, isolated area, the two start to fall for each other as they try to figure just why the pods opened ahead of time as the ship begins to collapse. Passengers is set to hit theaters on Dec. 21.
“Levitate” isn’t the first song the guys from Imagine Dragons have released for film soundtracks. Back in 2013, they released “Who We Are” for another Jennifer Lawrence-starring flick, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. In 2014, they released “Battle Cry” for Transformers: Age of Extinction and another song titled “Warrior” for the battle arena video game, League of Legends.
Imagine Dragon’s last studio album was 2015’s Smoke + Mirrors.
