Watch Imagine Dragons go acoustic for ‘PUSH Live.’
In our latest exclusive “PUSH Live” performance, PUSH alumni Imagine Dragons strip down their folk-fest-ready rock to just guitars and violin. The intimate take on the band’s signature track, “It’s Time,” still fills the (extremely tall!) room, turning from festival anthem to Mumford-worthy fireside sing-along. By the time the rest of the group come in, the sun bursts through the freaking windows as Dan Reynolds belts, “I’m never changing who I am.” Because he’s already perfect and can summon the sun.
After the release of their Continued Silence EP, the band’s debut album, Night Visions, is due on Interscope in September. Grammy-winning U.K. hip-hop/R&B guru Alex Da Kid (Nicki Minaj, Rihanna) is producing, but we think we can trust Imagine Dragons not to go changing too much on us. In the meantime, we’re going to keep watching this video and plan ways to appear in a sunbathed blaze of glory during crucial life moments like first dates and ordering frozen yogurt. Siri? Can we get an app for that?
