Progressive music titans Dream Theater have released the first song from their recently announced 14th studio album, Distance Over Time.
“Untethered Angel” is the first new song from the album set for worldwide release on February 22, 2019. The new single is quintessential Dream Theater and takes the listener on a musical journey that cements the band’s place as the premier progressive metal band around today.
“During the writing and recording process of D/T, “Untethered Angel” was known as ‘Song 4’ to all of us as it was the 4th song written during the sessions. However, there has always been something about this track that just begged for it to be the album opener, even long before all of the songs were written,” explains guitarist and album producer John Petrucci. “Fear is something that rears it’s ugly head at some point or another in all of our lives. Fear of the unknown, fear of taking chances, fear of making mistakes. If we are not careful, it can be debilitating and sadly prevent us from realising our true potential. The world we live in can be a scary place and the thought of an uncertain future a terrifying notion, especially for today’s young people. Untethering from that fear and giving yourself up to the future’s countless possibilities is what will ultimately set you free.’”
Distance Over Time showcases a newfound creativity for Dream Theater while maintaining the elements that have garnered them devoted fans around the globe.
