This was one of the first great custom songs and still holds up today! It proved that BeatSaber wasn’t just for more electronic music, but could be just as fun with other genres.
“Believer” thunders around a percussive backbeat and expressive vocals from Dan Reynolds to bring about a message of embracing pain, and using it as a tool for personal growth. It marks the end of Imagine Dragons’ self-imposed hiatus that started in 2016.
The song was released on the first of February as the lead single for their third studio album, ƎVOLVE, and was featured in a commercial for the Nintendo Switch that premiered on Super Bowl LI. The song was also featured in the first trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s Murder on the Orient Express remake.
Writer and vocalist Dan Reynolds spoke to Radio.com in regards to this song: “‘Believer’ to me, is the first song I’ve ever written in my career that I could stand back and say, that is only Imagine Dragons—that comes from a place that is really authentic to us, it’s very percussive, it has the urban qualities that I’ve always latched onto but it also sounds strange and kind of grand”
