Imagine Dragons's magnetic track "Thunder" was a standout off of Evolve, their third studio album released this June. Fans of the electric track are in for a treat: today, V is exclusively premiering the official remix of the song, featuring upcoming standout artist K.Flay, who will be supporting Imagine Dragons on their headlining tour this fall.

Dan Reynolds, Imagine Dragons's lead singer, tells V about the brand new remix: "I love how K.Flay deconstructed the song and made it her own. It definitely has her unique subtle twist. She stayed true to her dark and minimalist approach while also adding her raspy iconic voice and storytelling," he says. "I'm excited to be touring with not only one of my favorite artists, but someone who is also a dear friend to me."

The two initially met after Reynolds heard about her music through friends, saying "I was immediately blown away by her melodic and lyrical work. She was so poetic and intelligent in her lyrics and also had a very distinct style and voice."

On their new collaboration, K.Flay adds: "I discovered Imagine Dragons years ago, right after Night Visions came out. But one Dan and I started working together, I dug into their whole catalogue, full force, which was rad. We both create music outside any specific genre; I think that's what made me so excited to collaborate, and emotionally, thematically, we write from similar places."

Listen to the song below, available for purchase tomorrow, Friday September 8. Catch Imagine Dragons and K.Flay on tour this September, with a full list of tour dates here.
