About the Album
Evolve (stylized as ƎVOLVE) is the third studio album by American rock band Imagine Dragons, released on June 23, 2017 by Kidinakorner and Interscope Records. After the release of their previous album Smoke + Mirrors (2015) and its respective world tour, a self-imposed hiatus for 2016 and cryptic messages from the band through their social media gained anticipation for their third album; it was finally announced on May 9, 2017, along with the initiation of its pre-order. In comparison to Smoke + Mirrors and their 2012 debut Night Visions, frontman Dan Reynolds called the album an “evolution”for the band.
Evolve peaked at number 2 on the US Billboard 200, and received mixed reviews from critics; some acknowledged the band’s claim of evolution, while others described it as lifeless and commercially-oriented. It was promoted with the singles “Believer”, “Thunder”, “Whatever It Takes”, and “Next to Me”, as well as a world tour produced by Live Nation and supported with Grouplove and K.Flay that started in September 2017. The album was also nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 60th Annual Grammy Awards.
