Less than 18 months after releasing their previous album, the platinum-selling LP Evolve, Imagine Dragons announced on Thursday (October 4th) that their fourth studio album Origins is due out on November 9th.
The Interscope-released album was announced via Twitter, featuring a trippy video:

Previously released tracks “Zero” and “Natural” are among the 15 songs on the forthcoming album with possibly more to come in the following weeks. With assistance from producers Joel Little (Lorde, Khalid), Mattman & Robin (Selena Gomez, Carly Rae Jepsen) and John Hill (Florence + the Machine), Origins was conceived as a sister album to 2017’s Evolve.
Frontman Dan Reynolds commented, “It’s about seeking new ground but also appreciating your root,” and that, “When we create, we create with no boundaries, no rules. We find it thrilling to make music that feels different and new to us.”
