“The Gift of Music” – Dream Theater [YouTube Official Music Video]


Prog rockers Dream Theater have shared an official music video for “The Gift of Music,” the first single from their studio double-album, The Astonishing. Watch it above, via Dream Theater’s YouTube.

Guitarist John Petrucci spoke with Rolling Stone about working on the video with director Wes Teshome:

It was great working with director Wes Teshome on our latest video for “The Gift of Music.” While we were looking to keep the emphasis on performance, we wanted to be sure that the vibe was unique and special so we found a really interesting location to film in New Jersey that had the perfect atmosphere. By blending in some digital animation we were also able to covey some of the concept from The Astonishing as well. We think it demonstrates the perfect balance of story and performance.

The Astonishing is available on Amazon. You can also stream the full album for free and read our review here on Zumic.
