Concord Music Publishing has acquired the songs catalogue of Imagine Dragons. So that’s nice, isn’t it? For them, at the very least.

“Concord’s acquisition strategy has remained consistent since 2006”, insists the firm’s Chief Business Development Officer Steve Salm. “Simply put, we acquire catalogues from creators and owners with songs that the entire world not only recognises but loves. A to Z, our portfolio is comprised of some of the most culturally recognised and revered songs and recordings in history”.

But how well do Imagine Dragons fit into all that? “Imagine Dragons fits perfectly in that realm”, he says, incredulously. “Our publishing team proudly welcomes Imagine Dragons, and [their] unparalleled songwriting and performance success in the past decade, to the treasured catalogues that already call Concord home”.

Chipping in at this point, Chief Publishing Executive Jake Wisely adds: “Imagine Dragons are a rock powerhouse. From topping the charts to sweeping awards to sync and sell out tours, Imagine Dragons’ success is undeniable. We are honoured that Imagine Dragons has chosen Concord and are excited to add another legendary band to the Concord catalogue”.

Plus, of course, there’s the added bonus that every time someone mentions the band Imagine Dragons, everyone immediately imagines some dragons. Dragons are cool.
