Two-time Grammy-nominated and millions-selling progressive music titans Dream Theater have released another song from their recently announced 14th studio album, Distance Over Time. â€œFall Into The Lightâ€ is the second new song from the album slated for worldwide release on February 22, 2019. The new song builds upon the excitement that the band created in December with the release of the first track from Distance Over Time, â€œUntethered Angel,â€ that has been viewed over 1.5 million times in 4 weeks since its release. â€œFall Into The Lightâ€ is a riff-driven, epic musical experience that takes the listener on a 7-minute emotional journey, something Dream Theater does all too well. The video for â€œFall Into The Lightâ€ can be seen here: https://youtu.be/JFxH4kky6z4.
â€œâ€˜Fall Into The Lightâ€™ is about the quest towards enlightenment that exists in life,â€ explains bassist John Myung. â€œIt is more about the underlying themes of lifeâ€™s journey and less about what happens once you get there. It is a song of introspection; about looking inside to find your individual happiness.â€
Distance Over Time showcases a newfound creativity for Dream Theater while maintaining the elements that have garnered them devoted fans around the globe. The album also marks the first for the bandâ€™s new label InsideOutMusic / Sony Music. The artwork was created by long-time cover collaborator Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour). Distance Over Time was produced by John Petrucci, mixed by Ben Grosse and mastered by Tom Baker.
