Dream Theater has released a new song called “Invisible Monster,” a track off the band’s upcoming album, A View from the Top of the World.

In a statement, guitarist John Petrucci describes “Invisible Monster,” which you can download now via digital outlets, as a “more mid-temp song” about “how anxiety plagues people.”

“It’s like there’s an invisible monster beating you,” he explains. “You don’t see it, but it’s haunting you all of the time.”

“Invisible Monster” is the second song to be released from A View, following “The Alien,” though it’s considered to be the record’s first official single. At six-and-a-half minutes, “Invisible Monster” is the second shortest cut off the album — the closing title track is the longest, at over 20 minutes.

A View from the Top of the World will be released October 22. It’s the follow-up to 2019’s Distance over Time.
