Check out the new Dream Theater single ‘The Alien’ from the new album ‘A View From The Top Of The World’! ‘The Alien’ is the first one we wrote together for the new album. 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.
