Don't Sleep, fronted by Dave Smalley, has released a new single and Tom Petty cover of "Runnin' Down A Dream."


Listen below.


The band also recently released a full-length by the name of Turn The Tides last month on Mission Two Entertainment.


Speaking of cover, Smalley explains:



[Tom Petty's] music is one of those rare things that nearly everyone vibes on - everyone from hippies to hardcore hoodlums. When Don't Sleep was talking about what cover song we wanted to do, there were lots of great ideas but there was always one guy saying "yeah but..." But when our lead guitarist Tom McGrath suggested Tom Petty, and specifically this song, there was zero hesitation from anyone. To make a cover great, you need to feel it. And everyone felt it. We tracked this in The Green Room studio in Harrisburg, PA with producer Matt Holmes, and it was done super late in the evening, after midnight. Energy levels through the roof, karma bright. I had a ton of fun singing it, and the words are freaking phenomenal. We salute you Tom!
