A reimagined version of Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ album from 1996 “She’s The One” is to be released. This is to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
The album will be called “Angel’s Dream”. It is a remixed, remastered, and reimagined version of the band’s “Songs And Music From The Motion Picture She’s The One”. It is set for release on July 2.
On top of this, this reissued album will be released on limted-edition cobalt blue vinyl for Record Store Day tomorrow (June 12). Find out more about this here.

“A sweet little treat”
“‘She’s The One’ was originally a great way to include some of the songs that didn’t make it on to Wildflowers, but it has its own thing to it, its own charm, and putting it out now in a restructured form makes for a sweet little treat”, Heartbreaker member Benmont Tench told Sirius XM.
Before his death in 2017, Petty had worked on the mixes for the album with Ryan Ulyate. The songs were intially supposed to work as a Heartbreakers album rather than a film.
“Fun working as a band”
Benmont Tench also added, “At the time in the studio, it was fun working as a band to improvise the scoring cues for the movie rather than playing to pre-set click tracks and a written score. And it was interesting to try to cut covers of others’ songs for a record, instead of learning covers just for live shows”.
“We got a nice vibey version of Beck’s song and I’ve always loved Lucinda’s song ‘Change The Locks,’ so I was more than happy to cut it with our band”, he added. “Oh, and this album has ‘Angel Dream’ on it, one of the loveliest songs Tom ever wrote”.
Dana Petty on “Extremely special” songs
Four unreleased tracks were also added. These include two tracks written by Petty “105 Degrees” and “One of Life’s Little Mysteries”. The other tracks include, “Thirteen Days” (A cover by JJ Cale) and “French Disconnection” (an instrumental in the same vein as the instrumentals on the original album).
It also includes an extended version of “Supernatural Radio”.
Tom’s widow, Dana Petty called these songs “extremely special” and also thanked Ryan Ulyate for his contribution to the reissued album.
“These songs are extremely special. I am grateful this record is getting the recognition it deserves”, she said.
“The remix Ryan Ulyate did sounds amazing, and the unreleased gems are a lovely bonus. Annakim, Adria, and I took a lot of time finding artwork that reflects the mood of the album. I think we finally achieved that with Alia Penner’s work. It is surreal and beautiful, just like life during that time”.
This also comes after the reissuing of Petty’s 1994 album “Finding Wildflowers” was released in April. More on that here.
