Frontman Dan Reynolds gave fans some background on the new recordings. “I’ve been working on this album with the guys for the last three years and feel both excited and anxious for their release,” he writes in a social post.
“Follow You,” he explains, is a song about “loyalty and love.” Its b-side “Cutthroat” is “the opposite side of the record, both sonically and thematically. It’s an exorcism of self-pity,” he explains.
The as-yet-untitled album will be the followup to 2018’s Origins, which hit No. 2 on the Billboard 200 chart.
