I think the fact that "The Shaman's Trance" was revealed first and "Bridges In The Sky" second probably means the latter title is right, if you go by CJS' wording on his tweet.

https://twitter.com/#!/Piratecjs

"Hey Everyone, Yes 'Bridges in the Sky' is in fact Shaman's. Make a note of it and enjoy while listening. Although you'll have to wait a bit"


It's like saying "Yes, 'Learning To Live' is in fact Creep With Tonality". You affirm that the new title is what the old one was.

-Marc.
That was the way I read it first, but then I read it again, and decided that actually*, "in fact" implies that what follows is correct. In the same way "actually" did just then. Like, "Superman is in fact just Clark Kent with his glasses off." (Spoilers, there, by the way.)

I think it probably is called Bridges in the Sky, now, but I think the mighty Pirate's tweet implies the opposite, if anything. Which I really like. I love the ambiguity. :lol

Not to ruin the fun, but if it wasn't called BITS!, then he would have said so explicitly. By not denying it's called BITS!, he is thereby agreeing with the new name's spot in place of TST!.

But the RR pre-order page has changed it back to The Shaman's Trance ..? I'm confused https://dreamtheater.warnerartists.net/en/a-dramatic-turn-of-events.html

I posted a thread on James' forum.  Hopefully, he'll see it and respond.

I sent him a message on Twitter earlier today asking the same thing (before I saw your post). I guess we should feel acknowledged! Nevertheless, I just messaged him again and asked him to clarify his last tweet.

There's a horribly horrible misunderstanding with this song. It's almost as bad as "Static Pulse" (by JLB) vs. "Static Impulse" (by Matt) back then.

It's always been The Shaman's Trance on the UK pre-order. And always been Bridges in the Sky on the US pre-order.

I just got word from Dream Theater. The official name of the song is:

The Shaman Walking Across Bridges In the Sky While in a Trance

i think the song is called BITS, not TST, coz james said the whole name "bridges in the sky" but only the word "shaman", as if it isn't important that we know the shaman one now

I dont know if it was brought up before, but does this make you think it could be an instrumental, because if it wasnt there'd have to be something in the chorus involving shaman's or bridges :P so idk it sounds like this could be an instrumental because with an instrumental it could be easier to change the name of a song

It's "Bridges in the Sky."  James said, "TAKE NOTE OF IT," which usually implies something has been changed.  If it were still "Shaman's Trance," he would have said.... "The song is still called Shaman's Trance" or something..... but, most likely wouldn't have added, "TAKE NOTE OF IT," because that wouldn't have been in context since we already have "taken note" of that title already.

JLBs first tweet also left me more confused than ever. I hope this becomes the greatest fan speculation in DT history.

Heh, when I heard about the name change I was giggling that the lyrics probably have the phrase "Bridges In The Sky" in the first line. That would follow the style of TCOT / OTBOA quite nicely. Maybe that is even a new DT policy now that the lyric rule is gone?

It's over, people.

The name changed from Shaman's to Bridges in the Sky.

Deal with it.

Yeah, seems like it. I don't really mind it, though. The most recent instrumentals, Raw Dog, SOC and TDOE don't really rank high in my book.

well it's definitely not an instrumental then :( even though, it may still have an instrumental section like metropolis pt 1 or something
