In honour of the 25th anniversary of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 1996 album ‘Songs and Music from the Motion Picture ‘She’s The One’’ and to continue the celebration of the prolific ‘Wildflowers’ era of Tom’s career, the Petty family and Warner Records are unveiling ‘Angel Dream’, a remixed, remastered and reimagined version of the album. The reissue was released on limited-edition cobalt blue vinyl, June 12th (Record Store Day), with the CD and digital release following on July 2nd.
The new title is a nod to the opening track on the album, ‘Angel Dream No. 2’, which is out now. Earlier today, Tom’s daughter Adria Petty, wife Dana Petty, long-term engineer and co-producer Ryan Ulyate, as well as Heartbreaker Benmont Tench spoke with David Fricke about the album and played the song, along with other unreleased tracks on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio.
Ryan Ulyate remixed the audio for the reissue and worked with Tom on the mixes before his passing. The song selection was designed to work as a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers album rather than a film soundtrack, and four unreleased tracks were added: ‘One of Life’s Little Mysteries’ (written by Tom), ‘Thirteen Days’ (a JJ Cale cover), ‘105 Degrees’ (another Tom original), and ‘French Disconnection’ (an instrumental in the same vein as those on the original album). An extended version of ‘Supernatural Radio’ is also included.
The original 1996 album included several songs that were left off the final ‘Wildflowers’ tracklist but were recently featured in 2020’s critically lauded ‘Wildflowers & All The Rest’ collection. ‘Angel Dream (Songs and Music from the Motion Picture ‘She’s The One’)’ will replace the existing physical versions of the soundtrack, although the original release will remain on DSPs in addition to the new album.
‘Angel Dream (Songs and Music from the Motion Picture ‘She’s The One’)’ is available for pre-order here.
