Two-time Grammy-nominated and million-selling progressive metal music titans Dream Theater have revealed another song from their recently announced 14th studio album, Distance Over Time.

Fall Into The Light is the second new song from the album which is set for worldwide release on 22 February, 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, Untethered Angel, that has been viewed over 1.5 million times in 4 weeks since its release.

Watch the video for the new song here:

“Fall Into The Light is about the quest towards enlightenment that exists in life,” according to bassist John Myung. <“It is more about the underlying themes of life’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.”

The new album also marks the first for the band’s new label InsideOutMusic / Sony Music that boasts artwork  created by long-time cover collaborator Hugh Syme (Rush, Iron Maiden, Stone Sour). Distance Over Time was produced by DT guitarist John Petrucci, mixed by Ben Grosse and mastered by Tom Baker.

Standard CD Jewel Case,
Special Edition Digipak (incl. 1 bonus track),
180g Gatefold 2LP Edition (incl. 1 bonus track, an 8-page-LP-booklet & the entire album on CD),
