It's been a good week for new music from Mix 94.9 artists!

From Las Vegas-based Imagine Dragons to UK singer-songwriter James Bay, here's new music you may have missed this week:

1. X Ambassadors - Don't Stay

In anticipation of their upcoming album Joyful, X Ambassadors have released a music video for their latest single "Don't Stay." Joyful is set to release sometime in 2018 (a specific date hasn't been announced yet), and they'll be making a MN stop on their Joyful Tour at Myth in Maple Wood, MN May 1.

2. Imagine Dragons - Next to Me

Las-Vegas alt rockers Imagine Dragons dropped a new single this week "Next to Me." An emotions-capturing sonnet, this one's going to have everyone singing along at shows as waving cell phone screens light up air.

3. James Bay - Wild Love

James Bay recently shared in a radio interview that he's been "hiding out" at home in London, getting away from crowds and escaping the tour life for a bit while working on new music. "Wild Love" is the result and the first single from his upcoming album. No release date for the album has been announced yet, though he says one of the songs is influenced by Sesame Street, so it probably can't drop soon enough.

4. Owl City - Montana

"Montana" is the sixth and latest single from Owl City's upcoming 18-track album Cinematic. Yes, you just read that right -- Owl City is still making music. Cinematic will be Owl City's six full studio album and first in three years and is set for release June 1, 2018.

5. George Ezra - Paradise

Technically, this performance on BBC's Graham Norton Show was two weeks ago. But I missed it, which means there's a good chance you missed it, too, especially if you don't watch British television. "Paradise" is the second single from Ezra's sophomore album Staying at Tamara's which is set to release March 23, 2018. If it's anything like his first album Wanted On Voyage, we have a lot to look forward to.
