Imagine Dragons’ debut album kilt it. Seriously… it did. Their debut album, Night Visions, was released back in 2012 and since then has sold more than 2 million copies – I mean, that doesn’t happen very often nowadays. Night Visions also has the cool honor of appearing in the Billboard 200 top 10 in 2012, 2013, and 2014 – not to mention the album became the fourth best-selling album of 2013 in the US! That’s just cray cray.
So how do you follow up a killer debut album?! I guess, keep the same momentum going and stick the same the formula which got you famous, right? Sounds good to me. “I Bet My Life’ is the group’s first single off their upcoming album and from the sounds of it, they’re keeping it light. A bit folky… and a bit Mumford & Sons (which isn’t a bad thing at all)… the group hits it home with an equally infectious tune as their last releases. “I Bet My Life” is more of an uplifting track like their “On Top Of The World” hit compared to “Radioactive” which is MUCH darker. Whether or not you prefer darker ID or chirpy ID, I’m sure their sophomore album will just as amazing as their debut.
