Another New World

Album: Change of Time (2010)
  • Ritter explained to Express Night Out: "It's about a ship captain who is a traveler and leaves to find a world beyond the ice of the North Pole. And he never finds it. It's more about his obsession and love affair with his ship."
  • The running time of this epic tune is 7:34 and its large not only in length, but also in musical content. Ritter told Express Night Out: "One of the things with this whole record is I wanted to make sure that I put longer songs on there because I thought they would come to define the record. (The song) has everything from vibraphones, to violin, and pianos and French horns. It's huge."
