And doing a song for Transformers: Age of Extinction…
- Imagine Dragons Frontman Dan Reynolds recently spoke about working on the group's second album and more. Here are the highlights…
Frontman Dan Reynolds on Their New Studio: "We took a house here in Vegas, cleared it, renovated it and turned it into a studio. It was like a dream for us, because some of these guys are big-time gear heads. We're recording the album in that studio here in Las Vegas."
Reynolds on Songs For Their Next Album: There are a lot of road songs and all the emotions that come with that," he says. "I think it will be a special record because it really encapsulated the whole process of going from being a small nothing band to actually playing arenas. There are a lot of interesting things that go on between that. We're excited with how it's turning out."
Reynolds On "Radioactive's" Run on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart: "I don't think any of us expected it to have any life like that," Reynolds says of the song. "It just kept going. Playing live, honestly, we didn't burn out on it because … we don't really listen to our music unless we're on a stage playing it. If you do that, it keeps it fresh for you. Maybe in 20 years I'll be telling you we're very tired of playing that song, but right now … we have good memories associated with it."
Reynolds On Doing a Song For Transformers: Age of Extinction: "They reached out and asked if we wanted to do something with (composers) Hans Zimmer and Steve Jablonsky, who are two of our all-time favorites — they're legends," he says. "It's incredible to work with them. We all grew up watching the ‘Transformers' cartoon, it was part of our youth, we're children of the ‘80s."
