Dream Theater Premiere Second Version of "Our New World" with Guest Lzzy Hale

Dream Theater Premiere Second Version of

Prog legends Dream Theater have released a new version of “Our New World,” which features a guest vocal appearance from Halestorm powerhouse singer Lzzy Hale. The release is an updated version of the song of the same name that appears on the band’s latest album, 'The Astonishing.'

Produced by guitarist John Petrucci, ‘The Astonishing’ is a 34 song long double-album which conceptualizes a dystopian world in the future ruled by tyrants. The post-apocalyptic setting desperately needs a hero, or “Chosen One,” to battle the oppressive empire. In the 2016 February/March issue of Revolver, Petrucci said “Everything about this album was deliberate. It was planned about two and a half years ago. Every detail and layer of it was proposed and planned—from having it based on an original story to having it be a concept album in two acts and being its own stand-alone Dream Theater show that we’ll present in seated venues across the world. We had it very mapped out from the beginning.” The album was released in January via Roadrunner.
