Listen to Lzzy Hale’s guest spot with Dream Theater

Dream Theater

Dream Theater have streamed a new version of their track Our New World, featuring Halestorm vocalist Lzzy Hale.

The original song appears on the band’s latest album The Astonishing, which was released in January.

Keyboardist Jordan Rudess recently said that, despite the acclaim they’d received, it would be a mistake for them to follow their 13th title with another concept album.

He reported: “This is a particular creative adventure for us, to write a concept album very much like a musical or a rock opera.

“I think that whatever we decide to do next – which we haven’t really decided – will be something very different. It’s not going to be another concept album. I don’t think that would be the best thing to do.

“But it will be some creative adventure that we’ll feel like we want to put our energies behind.”

Dream Theater launch a North American tour next month.
