The highly anticipated fifth studio album of the band, “Mercury – Act 1” was released on September 3, 2021 via Virgin Records. Produced by Rick Rubin it’s a candid and spontaneous album that moves away from the metaphor-heavy lyrics of the past, focusing on lyrics that want to embrace emotional extremes, without any qualms.
The first samples of the new album, released simultaneously in March 2021, were “Follow You” and “Cutthroat”, the former of which marked the band’s fastest rise to the top of the chart in Alternative radio airplay. The following single, “Wreked”, tells in a sort of intimate self-confession the journey in the pain suffered by lead singer Dan Reynolds, following the death of his sister-in-law from cancer in 2019.
