Imagine Dragons has premiered a new song called “Sharks,” which will appear on the band’s upcoming album, Mercury — Act 2.

The track is available now via digital outlets and is accompanied by a video showing Dan Reynolds and company channeling their inner Ocean’s Eleven as they pull a Las Vegas heist, though not to steal money. You can watch that now streaming on YouTube.

“With the ‘Sharks’ music video our goal was to represent our hometown in the light it deserves — a city of passion, entertainment and art,” Reynolds says. “Always awake and eccentric. Always an adventure to be had.”

“As a third generation Las Vegan, I love this city and owe our success to it,” he adds. “They have always championed us. ‘Sharks’ pays homage to the city we call home. Las Vegas.”

Mercury — Act 2 is the follow-up to last September’s Mercury — Act 1, which features the singles “Follow You,” “Wrecked” and the hit J.I.D collaboration, “Enemy.” The two albums will be released together in a single package on July 1.

Imagine Dragons is currently on tour in Europe. They’ll return stateside for a U.S. tour in August.
