Imagine Dragons have released a brand new single titled Natural.

It’s a standalone track and it’s been chosen as the anthem for ESPN’s coverage of the upcoming American college football season.

Vocalist Dan Reynolds says of the song: “Living in a dog-eat-dog world can bring out the worst in you, and sometimes, the best.

“It would be a lie to tell you I haven’t become somewhat skeptical about some things in the last decade of my life. However, I believe that when you truly learn to love yourself, the judging eyes and hateful words become meaningless.

Natural is about finding yourself and being willing and able to stand up to whatever adversity comes your way.”

It’s also been revealed that Imagine Dragons will perform the track on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday night.

Imagine Dragons are currently on the second leg of their Evolve World Tour. They have several dates remaining in the US and will then head to Europe for further live shows next month.
