Entering a fearlessly bold era, Imagine Dragons will unveil their anxiously awaited sixth full-length album, LOOM (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope), this Friday, June 28th. To usher in the album's release week, the band will perform tonight (June 24) on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Imagine Dragons' sixth studio album LOOM represents the pinnacle of their artistic journey of self-discovery and marks the best body of work they've ever made. LOOM, produced entirely by Imagine Dragons with Swedish hitmakers and longtime band collaborators Mattman and Robin, finds the perfect balance between the classic sounds that have made them superstars and the freshness that brought them joy in the studio. The propulsive funk-pop of "Kid" and "Nice to Meet You" channel your favorite early 2000s sound. The reggae-rock of "Gods Don't Pray" blends with the gothic-anthemic vibe of lead single "Eyes Closed" and melancholic balladry of "Don't Forget Me." Featuring 9 brand new tracks including hit singles "Eyes Closed" and "Nice to Meet You," LOOM signifies new beginnings on the horizon - the excitement for a new day, moments yet to come. (continue)

Redbeard shared this synopsis: The evening before my first interview with him was scheduled to occur, regarding his third solo album The End of the Innocence, Don Henley wanted to check me out.

Rising alt-pop star Klemntyna just released her debut album "SHE", and to celebrate we asked her to tell us about the song "DISTANCE". Here is the story:

It was the very beginning of the pandemic in March 2020. I have moved to a new apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and I was sitting on the floor by the portable keyboard that my friend lent me so I could continue writing music in lockdown. This is how "DISTANCE" came to be. Originally, it was a song I wrote as my submission for a songwriting competition, where "distance" was a keyword off of which you had to come up with a story. "Distance" at the time meant for many the actual, physical distance as people were separated from each other. I decided to interpret "distance" metaphorically and write about the "distance" I've felt within myself in the context of my dreams and ambitions. (continue)
