"Bad Liar" is a soaring electro-pop ballad from the second new Imagine Dragons album in less than eighteen months. 'Origins' arrives this Friday.
As one of our listeners is about to board a plane to Las Vegas for a trip we gave away last week to an exclusive listening party and intimate performance - Hi, Stephanie from Lawrence! - Imagine Dragons shared another new track from Origins.
"Bad Liar" is a vibey ballad with a big chorus that mines the band's electropop side rather than the hard driving rock of "Natural".

Ahead of Origins we also heard the upbeat, poppy "Zero" (which doubles as the lead song from Disney's Ralph Breaks The Internet soundtrack) and a rockin' banger called "Machine".
Origins is kind of a sister album to 2017's Evolve. A band of Imagine Dragons' stature putting out two full-lengths in such a short period is pretty much unheard of in the current rock climate. Whether they admit it or not, I view this as an influence of modern day hip hop where artists drop new material regularly in order to stay on top of their fans' minds.
Plus Imagine Dragons are currently having the most commercial success of their career. Every single from Evolve achieved pop success. Current single "Natural" is kicking ass as we speak. And if we look back to "Sucker For Pain" - the ID-led hip hop collab from the Suicide Squad soundtrack in 2016 - that's five crossover hits in two years. And that's not even counting the band's cultural contributions like the Dan Reynolds-led LOVELOUD festival in Utah and the Believer documentary.
No other alternative or rock act can touch Imagine Dragons right now.
