May 16 — Dream Theater front man James LaBrie kicked off the week by premiering another new single from his new album.
LaBrie premiered his new single, ‘Am I Right‘ and its video Monday. The song is the third single from his new album, Beautiful Shade of Grey, which is scheduled for release May 20 through InsideOut Music. The album has already produced the singles, ‘Give and Take‘ and ‘Devil In Drag‘ and its video. ‘Am I Right’ is the last single from the album ahead of its release Friday.
‘Am I Right’ is the softest of the songs that LaBrie has released from the album so far. It is centered largely on LaBrie’s vocals and semi-acoustic guitar line. The subtle addition of the bongos as a supporting element adds even more to the song’s musical dept, as do the gospel style backing vocals that join in as the song progresses.
LaBrie talked about the new single in a prepared statement.
“The anthemic song of the album with gorgeous chordal picking and progressions,” LaBrie said. “A perfect marriage between melody and music. Extremely dynamic throughout with an epic and glorious ending.”
No information was provided about the song’s lyrical theme. No lyrics are provided with the video, either. A close listen reveals the song’s lyrical content likely centers around the all too familiar topic of a relationship and the troubles connected therein.
The video for ‘Am I Right’ is a familiar style presentation in its own right. It features LaBrie and company in studio, working on the new album. Other various imagery is incorporated into the visualization to complete the video.
