Imagine Dragons – Believer

“Believer” is a song by American rock band Imagine Dragons. The song was released on February 1, 2017 through Interscope and KIDinaKORNER as the lead single from the band’s third studio album, Evolve.

“Believer” peaked at number four on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming the band’s third top ten hit after ‘Radioactive’ and ‘Demons’. The song played heavily on advertisements such for the Nintendo Switch and various movie trailers and television shows.

“Believer” thunders around a percussive backbeat and expressive vocals from Dan Reynolds to bring about a message of embracing pain, and using it as a tool for personal growth. It marks the end of Imagine Dragons’ self-imposed hiatus that started in 2016.

The song was released on the first of February as the lead single for their third studio album, ƎVOLVE, and was featured in a commercial for the Nintendo Switch that premiered on Super Bowl LI.

The song was also featured in the first trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express remake. On February 1, 2017, Imagine Dragons sent out a tweet about the song.

Later that same month, writer and vocalist Dan Reynolds spoke to Radio.com in regards to this song:

‘Believer’ to me, is the first song I’ve ever written in my career that I could stand back and say, that is only Imagine Dragons—that comes from a place that is really authentic to us, it’s very percussive, it has the urban qualities that I’ve always latched onto but it also sounds strange and kind of grand.

The music video was released on March 7, 2017 and features a boxing match between Dan Reynolds and Dolph Lundgren. It was directed by Matt Eastin and it features what seems to be a young Dan drawing on his notepad in scenes.

It is obvious that Dan is losing, and he says that he wants to stop, with Dolph replying, “We can’t,” making it sound like they are forced to fight by a higher authority.

It ends with Dan barely conscious, and we get to see what young Dan sketched: a symbol identical to the one on his chest as an adult.
