Imagine Dragons’ new album is a few days away, and they found a perfect way to hype it up just in time for its release. They dropped the music video for their latest single “Sharks”, which will take you straight to the bustling streets of Las Vegas.

With their latest music video, Imagine Dragons tried to capture the magic of their hometown. The music video was shot over the course of three days, and it includes some of the most iconic Las Vegas attractions, such as Bellagio, Allegiant Stadium, and Shark Reef Aquarium.

Dan Reynolds set down with Hanuman Welch on ALT CTRL Radio on Apple Music 1 to discuss the band’s upcoming album and explained the meaning behind their latest single.

“The world is filled with sharks. And as you get older it becomes more and more evident, but it’s also a self-reflection of like, ‘But how can you judge, because how many times have you been a shark?’ It’s like you see sharks, but are you one too?” said Reynolds.

“Sharks” is the second single from the band’s upcoming album Mercury – Act 2, set to hit the shelves on July 1. It was preceded by the lead single “Bones”, which was released back in March.
