Posted by on August 13, 2021


Dream Theater have shared a video for the new song “Alien.” The track is the opener for the group’s upcoming album, A View From the Top Of The World, out October 22nd via InsideOutMusic / Sony Music. 


John Petrucci comments:

“It’s the first one we wrote together. It gives people a window into what it was like when we initially met up after all of those months off. It has the adventure, the untraditional structure, the heaviness, and the hooks. It really set the tone for the album. James wrote the lyrics about the idea of terraforming and looking beyond our Earth for alternative settlements. Since we’re going beyond our planet, ‘The Alien’ turns out to be us. I thought it was a cool and creative lyric by James.”
