Imagine Dragons debuts Ralph Breaks the Internet music video!
Imagine Dragons, whose single “Natural” has spent eight weeks at No. 1 Alternative radio, appear in the just released arcade-based video (watch for the Disney Easter Eggs) for their song “Zero” that will be featured in Ralph Breaks the Internet.
In the movie, video-game bad guy Ralph struggles with his evolving friendship with fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz. According to Imagine Dragons’ lead singer Dan Reynolds, the film’s emotional themes are reflected in the song “Zero.” Reynolds commented:
“They are compelling because they are real to each of us, personally. That journey of feeling like nothing and trying to realize and recognize your worth as a human is an important part of life. And given the distorted version of reality kids face online and the expectations that come with it, this struggle is real for so many people right now.”
Dave Meyers directed the music video. Meyers was recently recognized at the Video Music Awards for video of the year (“Havana” by Camila Cabello ft. Young Thug), best pop video (“No Tears Left to Cry” by Ariana Grande) and best visual effects (“All the Stars” by Kendrick Lamar ft. SZA).
Featuring singles “Natural” and “Zero,” Imagine Dragons will release their fourth studio album, “Origins,” on Nov. 9 via KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. “Origins” is available for pre-order HERE and can be purchased in a variety of formats and bundles HERE.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
Ralph Breaks the Internet: Wreck-It Ralph 2leaves Litwak’s video arcade behind, venturing into the uncharted, expansive and thrilling world of the internet—which may or may not survive Ralph’s wrecking. Video game bad guy Ralph (voice of John C. Reilly) and fellow misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (voice of Sarah Silverman) must risk it all by traveling to the world wide web in search of a replacement part to save Vanellope’s video game, Sugar Rush. In way over their heads, Ralph and Vanellope rely on the citizens of the internet—the netizens—to help navigate their way, including a website entrepreneur named Yesss (voice of Taraji P. Henson), who is the head algorithm and the heart and soul of trend-making site “BuzzzTube.”
“Zero” will also be featured on Walt Disney Records’ Original Motion Picture Soundtrack—the digital album is available Nov. 16. Disney’s Ralph Breaks the Internet opens Nov. 21, 2018.
