Dream Theater’s Jordan Rudess Releases Solo Track “Embers”


Dream Theater keyboardist Jordan Rudess has released the song “Embers” as the first single from his upcoming solo album. That record will find the GRAMMY Award-winning progressive musician working with drummer Darby Todd (Devin Townsend, The Darkness) and vocalist Joe Payne on select tracks.

The aforementioned duo join Rudess on this latest single, which also finds Bastian Martinez lending a guitar solo. Rudess commented:

“‘Embers‘, the starting spark of my upcoming album, sets the tone for my latest solo musical journey. Originally created for Moises’ innovative platform, this track captures a mellower vibe, different from the rest of the album’s progressive tunes. For those prog heads out there, never fear, this album runs the gamut of my musical expression and you will get your polymeters and Snarling Pigs.

The inspiration for creating this track coincided with a project I was asked to do for the app, Moises, a technology that can turn standard audio files into separate tracks while also showing chords, lyrics and more. I hope you enjoy listening to Embers and, if you are inspired to add your own musical collaboration on this tune, check it out on Moises.”

A tentative September release is planned for Rudess‘ new album.
