“I’ve included a handful of alternate versions of songs from Sound of Contact’s Dimensionaut because they were written and/or recorded around the same time as songs from The Traveler such as “Another Lifetime”, “Ghostwritten Fables”, “For Granted” and others. Since some of the songs on The Traveler were originally intended to be on an SOC album, I thought it would be nice to include some newly recorded SOC songs as bonus tracks.” – Squids
