On the heels of their recent third GRAMMY nomination and as their rescheduled North American tour kicks off next week on February 2nd, millions-selling progressive music titans Dream Theater are releasing another music video from their recently released 15th studio album A View From The Top Of The World. ”Transcending Time” is the fourth video released from the band’s latest album and is another CGI creation by long-time collaborator Wayne Joyner. The song has been a fan-favorite since the album was released and is the shortest track on the band’s latest album clocking in at 6:24. The performance showcases the band’s musical influences while being quintessential Dream Theater. The video for “Transcending Time” can be seen here: https://youtu.be/LbzrxFRCyAk.

Dream Theater – comprised of James LaBrie, John Petrucci, Jordan Rudess, John Myung and Mike Mangini – was in the middle of a sold-out world tour in support of their last release Distance Over Time and the 20th anniversary of Scenes From A Memory when a Global Pandemic brought the world to a stop. The musicians found themselves at home with LaBrie in Canada and the rest of the group in the States. As fate would have it, they’d just finished construction on DTHQ (Dream Theater Headquarters) —a combination live recording studio, rehearsal space, control room, equipment storage, and creative hive. With LaBrie in Canada, he initially wrote with the band via ZOOM on a monitor in DTHQ. In March 2021, he flew down to New York, quarantined, and recorded his vocals face-to-face with Petrucci. The album ultimately threaded together lean and uncompromising hooks with tried-and-true technical proficiency.
