It Comes Back to You

Album: Smoke And Mirrors (2015)
  • Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds has struggled for much of his life with depression, ADD and anxiety issues. This song, which he wrote for his wife, refers to "things... I think I learned in therapy."

    Reynolds' wife is Aja Volkman, the lead singer of the band Nico Vega.
  • We hear Reynolds open up about his depression and his experience with the therapy that he began in 2014. The experience, the singer told The Independent, has helped him creatively. "It really made [my writing] more honest, because I went to places, no-go zones, that I'd blocked off in my head," said Reynolds. "It has helped me think deeper. The therapist isn't telling me things, it's more asking me questions about things I don't normally explore."
