Billy Tibbals - "Dream Away"

Los Angeles' finest retro glam rocker Billy Tibbals is back with a new single. "Dream Away" certainly doesn't sound like it was recorded in 2024 by any stretch of the imagination. This is a pure 1970's power ballad. It's the kind of song that your parents (or grandparents, I suppose) could have danced to at their prom. "Dream Away" sound like if T. Rex and Cheap Trick had truly conquered the world and been bigger than Led Zeppelin. It could have ended coming across as a little cheeky or cheesy, but Tibbals delivers the song so earnestly that you just can't help but love it.

Billy Tibbals says of his latest single:

"It might be my favorite song I've ever written. I think it captures pretty much exactly how I feel about this strange modern world we live in. Hopefully some people can relate to it."
