Imagine Dragons released their romantic song, “Not Today,” which appears on the soundtrack for the film Me Before You.
The production features a piano and acoustic guitar building a soft, sentimental feel in the opening measures. A string orchestra joins in at the chorus to build out the song’s overall swelling feel. “We finally fall apart and we break each other’s hearts/ If we wanna live young love, we better start,” lead singer Dan Reynolds sings. The song promises that things will get easier thanks to love, but the title “Not Today” hints that it’s not going to happen just yet.
“Not Today” reflects the film, wherein a young woman forms a strong connection with the recently-paralyzed man she’s been hired to take care of. Starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Clafin, Me Before You hits theaters on June 3rd.
