Global superstar and multi-platinum award-winning songwriter Tones And I has shared a new single entitled “Dreaming”, which she co-wrote with Sam Nelson of X Ambassadors and co-produced alongside Nelson and Randy Belculfine. “Dreaming” is available today on all streaming platforms and joined by an official music video directed by Tones And I, Nick Kozakis and Liam Kelly – watch it HERE.
About the song, Tones And I commented, “‘Dreaming’ is the first song from my upcoming album. I maintain my integrity in my stories, which always come from a genuine place of love, loss and hope. I have found myself subconsciously writing about things I’ve never written about before. I let my music go where it wants to go, and I never try to force it in one direction to suit a trend or style. I hope you like this song and I can’t wait to share more music soon.”
“Dreaming” arrives as Tones And I prepares to embark as direct support for P!NK’s 2024 Australia Stadium Tour. The run begins on February 9-10 with a pair of gigs at Allianz Stadium in Sydney, Australia, canvases the continent, and concludes with two nights at Country Bank Stadium in Townsville on March 22-23. Afterwards, she jets off to Asia for a string of dates in May, and then to Europe for a summer trek. Full list of dates are HERE.
Tones And I notably capped off 2023 with the powerful anthem “The Greatest,” which was released in support of the Australia Women’s Football team The Matildas, at the FIFA Women’s World Cup. Earning critical acclaim, Rolling Stone Australia raved, “‘The Greatest’ opens with towering strings before the singer-songwriter’s emphatic words arrive to inspire.” Tones And I was also featured on the track “BRING IT ON [Official FIFA Walkout Anthem],” alongside Bia and Diarra Sylla, and produced by RedOne (Lady Gaga, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber) which served as the official walk-out song for the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia, and will continue as the official walk-out music for every FIFA match until 2030. Furthermore, Tones And I performed a captivating set ahead of the FIFA Women’s World Cup final in front of a full house of more than 75,000 spectators at Sydney’s Stadium Australia, and broadcasting out to billions of people worldwide.
Those two tracks landed on the heels of Tones And I’s other 2023 single “I Am Free,” which has gathered millions of streams on DSPs alongside a special ‘Piano Version.’ “I Am Free” followed Tones And I’s single “I Made It” – composed for the Netflix original film True Spirit – her 2022 single “Charlie” and her feature on Macklemore’s “Chant.” The pair debuted the collaboration on Good Morning America with an electrifying performance in New York City’s Central Park. Furthermore, Tones And I also recently wrapped up a run of dates supporting Macklemore on his UK and Europe spring headline tour.
