Canadian prog-rock-band Saga have released the first single of their upcoming album Symmetry, out on March 12 via earMUSIC.
“Tired World” made its first appearance on the band’s debut album as one of two pieces of the jigsaw puzzle that is The Chapters, a continuous narrative revolving around a central theme and character (Albert Einstein), and spread out over several albums throughout much of Saga’s extensive body of work.
While “Tired World” is considered by many to be one of the band’s iconic classics, this new interpretation of the song brings a new life and new energy to the track with its thoughtful and creative re-imagining, without sacrificing the integrity of the original recording.
This new version also features guest performances (as do a majority of the songs on Symmetry), along with new acoustic instrumentation and fresh perspectives, highlighting the intricacies and arrangement of the song.
