Back on June 18, Styx released Crash of the Crown, an album of unique depth and uplift, a strong accomplishment from the long-running band despite its conception and recording during the trying times of the pandemic.

Among the standout tracks on the record is “Reveries,” a song that now has its own lyric video, as debuted by Styx on Friday:

Speaking with Rock Cellar’s Ken Sharp in our June 2021 feature story, Styx guitarist/songwriter Tommy Shaw discussed that track in particular:

“Our producer, Will Evankovich, knows he can send something to me; he writes this incredible music. He’s a melody writer too and it’s fun to work with a writer you trust and appreciate. So there was a lot of that, which went into this record.

“Will sent me this track ‘Reveries,’ the opening and the verse and the chorus and I put my pen to paper and those words just came out. It often surprises me what because I was thinking about that; I wasn’t even sure what I was talking about writing around running with the elephants. (laughs) “OK, now what’s the next line?” I thought of ‘Reveries’ as ‘likes’ on Instagram, you know, everyone is so influenced by whether people like them or not. Whoever that person is in “Reveries” is kind of caught up in that and that’s what the song is about.”
