The band will perform the song on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Thursday, July 19th. “Natural” has been chosen as the anthem of this year’s ESPN college football season.

“Living in a dog-eat-dog world can bring out the worst in you, and sometimes, the best,” says the band’s singer Dan Reynolds. “It would be a lie to tell you I haven’t become somewhat skeptical about some things in the last decade of my life.

Evolve has spent 55 weeks on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart, where it currently sits at No. 17. The album is also 12th in the world on Spotify with over 36 million monthly listeners.
