Daniel Tompkins' White Moth Black Butterfly have just released a gorgeous new single, The Dreamer, taken from their upcoming third album The Cost Of Dreaming.

"This is a song that explores both the apprehension and excitement of the birth of a dream," explains the TesseracT vocalist. "The Dreamer boldly embraces regretfully introspective verses that clash with a powerfully uplifting and hopeful chorus."

Of new record The Cost Of Dreaming, meanwhile, Dan continues, "The Cost Of Dreaming is something we feel just about every human being on the planet that's been affected by life changing disruption will relate strongly to.

"Our nature is to always be planning, dreaming about an ideal future in which we will have ticked various boxes that define our ideal lives, often at the cost of the present. And when control over that future is seized away from us and all we are left with is the present, we realise just how much we took for granted.

"Life is surely a gift to us all throughout which we experience moments of soaring bliss and happiness, and then in a heartbeat sink into states of great trouble and suffering. Often our struggles can serve as momentous opportunities for growth, but the balance of life can often hold us back from seizing the day. It's an outpouring of love and a cry for help.”

The Cost Of Dreaming is due out on May 28 via Kscope. Check out The Dreamer below:
