We've come to love Sara Noelle's annual Christmas songs, but it's also great to see her release a non-holiday song as well. This week she's releasing an EP of cover songs, and has made her cover of Tom Petty's "Runnin' Down a Dream" available as a pre-release single. One of my personal favorites of Petty's, Noelle's version is a slowed down, hazy, and dream-like version. It's more folky without truly being folk. It's more of a dream-pop meets folk sound, and Noelle gives a completely new take on the classic song. It's a lot less rockin' than Petty's original, but it's still an instantly compelling song.
You can listen to Sara Noelle's take on "Runnin' Down a Dream" below. Four Songs II is due out November 10. For more on Sara Noelle, check out the artist's website.
