Tom Petty Estate Issues Unreleased Song ‘There Goes Angela (Dream Away)’
Track comes from upcoming 'Wildflowers' box set
In June, Tom Petty’s estate announced that the long-awaited Wildflowers box set would finally see the light of day. They shared an unreleased demo of “You Don’t Know How It Feels” from it, and now there’s more.
On Wednesday (Aug. 5), the estate released “There Goes Angela (Dream Away),” another home recording from the collection.
There are a few ways to hear it. You can sign up through Spotify, Facebook or join Petty’s mailing list. Devoted fans can test their Tom Petty knowledge and take a quiz to access a download.
“There Goes Angela (Dream Away)” is an easygoing, acoustic track with a smooth harmonica opening that’s fit for any diehard Petty fan. It’s lyrics come straight from the mind of one of music’s best songwriters — “One day I’ll be back, One day I’ll be home, Right now I’ve got some things to do out on the road” — and remind us just how talented the rock icon was with a pen in hand.
For now, there’s no release date for the Wildflowers box set, but it looks like it could come sooner than later.
