Imagine Dragons have released the music video for their new single, “Wrecked.”

Directed by Matt Eastin, who directed the band’s previous clips for “Follow You” and “Cutthroat,” the video follows frontman Dan Reynolds as he’s haunted by the ghost of a lost loved one.  He sees her at a crowded party, on the street and on a beach, but she’s not really there.  In between, Reynolds is seen standing in the rain, where he’s the only person in a crowd without an umbrella. 

The clip ends with Reynolds sitting alone on a beach; the woman who’s been haunting him comes and sits down next to him, but we’re not sure if it’s real.

You can also watch Reynolds do an an acoustic version of “Wrecked” — which he recorded on the set of the video — on Instagram. Reynolds wrote the song after his sister-in-law passed away from cancer in 2019.

“Wrecked,” which premiered earlier this month, will appear on the band’s upcoming Rick Rubin-produced album Mercury — Act 1, due out September 3.
