Travellers in Space and Time is a 2010 album by The Apples in Stereo and their seventh studio release. It was the first album by the band to feature new drummer John Dufilho, as well as the first to cite Bill Doss and John Ferguson as permanent band members.[7] It is heavily influenced by the Electric Light Orchestra, especially their science-fiction concept album Time.[8]


The first single was "Dance Floor". The video for the song features actor Elijah Wood, who signed the Apples in Stereo to his label Simian Records, and previously directed the video for their song "Energy". "Dance Floor" along with a few other tunes were popular among shoppers as they were featured on playlists for such stores as Forever 21, Hollister Co, and Old Navy.
