Imagine Dragons' Video "On Top Of The World' Is Not What Fans Would Expect

"It's a very different video; if you've watched our videos, you know to expect the unexpected. But I think this is my favorite," says frontman Dan Reynolds; "There's a lot going on it it, some if it is subliminal. 'Sno Gard.' I'll say that. It has no meaning to you, but when you see the video, you'll be like 'Sno Gard . "
 
"Sno Gard" is "Dragons" spelled backwards and pops up several times in the clip. A boy has it written on his T-shirt, and when the broadcast of the band's faked moon landing cuts out, it's seen on TV screens.
 
The new video refers to the past and films of Stanley Kubrick ("The Shining," "2001: A Space Odyssey") and there is a clever nod to the "Paul is Dead" urban legend that surrounded the Beatles. The video is surreal and subliminal ... The Dragons wear facial hair in the clip proving they are still not too tired to have some fun.
 
"It also probably has something to do with sleep deprivation, like, when you just think everything is hilarious," Reynolds said. "We've been blown away by this past year, our heads are spinning, we need to go collect out minds and take in what's going on. I don't think any of us understand what this past year has been ... and maybe we all need a nap or something."
 
And what a year! Imagine Dragons have one of the top selling albums of the past 12 months with sales of over 2 million!

New U2 Album Coming Early 2014!

Posted on November 14, 2013

Irish Superstars U2 are due to release a new album in April 2014, according to reports which also claim the album could be announced at the Super Bowl XLVIII in February. Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, who has been running U2's day-to-day affairs, is reaching out to potential sponsors on the band's behalf. The album announcement would be seen by tens of millions of TV viewers during the half-time of the annual NFL final on February 2. 

U2's last Album "No Line On The Horizon" was released in 2009 and debuted at No.1 in 30 Countries! Adam Clayton says the band are trying to get the songs "absolutely right" prior to Christmas. Earlier this year U2 were reportedly spotted entering a New York studio with Coldplay's Chris Martin, fuelling speculation that the singer may appear on the band's new album. All four members of the rock group were seen at the Electric Lady Studios in New York in May. The Album is being produced by Danger Mouse and the project is finally near completion. 

As for what the new music could sound like, in a recent interview, longtime producer Daniel Lanois commented on the new U2 songs. “It sounded amazing, very, very big and powerful-sounding,” he said. “Some of it was adventurous. There were shades of ‘Achtung Baby.’” U2 also recently revealed their first new song in three years: “Ordinary Love,” a soaring anthem that will appear on the soundtrack to the forthcoming film Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom. The song will also be released on 10-inch vinyl for Record Store Day's Black Friday Event.

This is the band's second No. 1 album. It also bowed atop the list with its last set, 2010's "The Suburbs." However, that record started with a slightly larger figure: 156,000.

"Reflektor" is distributed by Universal Music Group, the band's first album with major distribution. Its previous sets went through Warner Music's indie distribution arm Alternative Distribution Alliance. Another change in the world of Arcade Fire is that it has a new partner in Capitol Records, which is promoting the album to radio. (The band is still with its longtime label Merge Records, which celebrates its sixth top 10 with "Reflektor.")

Last week's No. 1, Katy Perry's "PRISM," falls to No. 2 with 92,000 and a 68% sales decline. That second-week dip is the smallest for a No. 1 debut since August, when the Civil Wars' self-titled album fell by 66% in its second frame. Of the 10 No. 1 debuts after that (not including Arcade Fire), the largest second-week dip was Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience (2 of 2)," which dropped by 80%.
