Dream Theater releases first song from upcoming album ‘Distance over Time’

Dream Theater has released “Untethered Angel,” the first song from its recently announced 14 studio album, “Distance Over Time,” slated for worldwide release on Feb. 22, 2019.

“During the writing and recording process of D/T, ‘Untethered Angel’ was known as ‘Song 4’ to all of us as it was the fourth song written during the sessions,” guitarist John Petrucci said. “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.

“Fear is something that rears its 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 realizing 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” will be Dream Theater’s first release for its new label, InsideOutMusic/Sony Music. It’s available now for pre-order in various configurations at https://dream-theater.lnk.to/DistanceOverTime. It will be available as:Standard CD Jewel Case, Special Edition Digipak (including one bonus track), 180g Gatefold 2LP Edition (including one bonus track, an 8-page-LP-booklet and the entire album on CD), Ltd.
