Imagine Dragons Team With J Balvin For New Version Of 'Eyes Closed'

() Imagine Dragons join forces with multi-Latin GRAMMY award winner and global superstar J Balvin to share a new version of their hit single "Eyes Closed" (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) and accompanying collaborative music video directed by longtime band partner Matt Eastin.

Smashing stylistic boundaries, the future-facing anthem co-mingles elements of alternative, rap, electronic, and rock with a hint of reggaeton. Industrial production bumps beneath deftly rhymed verses laced with swaggering attitude. Against a backdrop of gritty hip-hop beat-craft spiked with jarring synths and string swells, front man Dan Reynolds charges forward with unapologetic and uncompromising cadences that culminate with a confident proclamation, "I could do this with my eyes closed." Meanwhile, Balvin's vibrant Latin flair intertwines seamlessly with Imagine Dragon's uplifting sound to deliver a genre-smashing bilingual banger.

"Eyes Closed (feat. J Balvin)" unites two of the biggest global artists across rock and Latin music, Imagine Dragons and J Balvin, for their shared mission to reach and champion people all across the globe, regardless of their background. The anthemic single, "Eyes Closed", demands the courage and bravery to stand up for oneself. As advocates and activists alike, this collaboration sees Imagine Dragons and J Balvin coming together to inspire their fans worldwide.

"Eyes Closed (feat. J Balvin)" is the second iteration from Imagine Dragons' forthcoming sixth studio album LOOM (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope), set for release on June 28th. The new album represents the pinnacle of the band's artistic journey of self-discovery and marks the best body of work they've ever made. LOOM, produced entirely by Imagine Dragons and their longtime 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. Featuring 9 brand new tracks including hit single "Eyes Closed", LOOM signifies new beginnings on the horizon - the excitement for a new day, moments yet to come.

In tandem with the record, the band will embark on their biggest North American headline tour to date. Descending upon legendary venues across the country, it kicks off on July 30, 2024 in Camden, NJ at Freedom Mortgage Pavilion, rolls through major markets coast-to-coast, and concludes on October 22, 2024 at Los Angeles' iconic Hollywood Bowl.
