Want to hear Tom Petty's lost 'Wildflowers' song 'There Goes Angela (Dream Away)'? You'll need to pass a quiz to acmes it

The Tom Petty estate has shared a previously unheard song, “There Goes Angela (Dream Away)”.  


 - But there's a catch - 


Accessing the song it requires a little effort - the easiest being successfully completing a five-question quiz on Petty’s website or entering your e-mail address and zip code so they can update their fan list. 





Heartbreakers keyboardist Benmont Tench had this to say about the song: 

“I don’t remember hearing this.  I think this is one where I would have said, ‘Oh, come on. Let’s cut this.’ I don’t remember even trying it. When it came on, I was so thrilled. But I was also mad like, ‘What? We didn’t cut this?’ When I first heard it, I was so happy that it almost made me cry because I was hearing him do something I hadn’t heard.”

The song is one of several tracks that was recorded during the Wildflowers sessions - but eventually scrapped after Petty was forced to release the album as a single LP instead of his envisioned double record.


Before his death - Petty had planned a Wildflowers box set that would have given us access to the dropped songs and more ... he even had plans to tour playing the album- telling Rolling Stone

“Single album concerts often don’t scan right for a concert...But with the amount of material I have for the Wildflowers double album, I think I’ve got enough tempos and types of songs that I could do a live show … And it’ll be fun for the audience since there’s a bunch of songs they’ll know.”


The estate still plans on releasing a Wildflowers celebratory release - an “exhaustive chronicle of the making of one of Petty’s most enduring albums” and has shared the demo version of  “You Don’t Know How It Feels"
