Australian artist Tones And I has returned with a brand-new single “Fly Away,” which is available now on all streaming platforms. The track, which is accompanied by a cinematic official music video live now on Tones And I’s YouTube channel, marks a new chapter in the global phenom’s already historic career and serves as a preview to her widely anticipated full-length debut. It was previewed earlier this week as the intro & outro to Apple’s Event.
Regarding “Fly Away,” Tones And I commented, “‘Fly Away’ is about chasing your dreams, reaching your goals and the realities that comes with it. Being a busker, I obviously had bigger dreams. However, this song is inspired by the way I thought I would feel versus the way I actually feel. I think that’s very powerful, at least to me. It’s about genuine happiness and what we think we need to have happiness versus what we actually want. The truth is we only ever want anything because we think it will make us happy, but it’s never that simple.”
Tones And I wrote “Fly Away” solely by herself while quarantining at home in Melbourne during the COVID-19 global pandemic.  Co-produced by Tones And I and Dann Hume, the song stands out as one of her most personal, poetic, and powerful compositions as she confides, “I had dream that someday I would just fly, fly away. Additionally, Tones And I chose to take a photo with her grandfather for the track’s single art (see above). “It’s a beautiful song, and I knew he would particularly like this one, so I thought it was the right choice. He’s my Pa, and I wanted to have something cool for us to do together that I can look back on. He’s also a boss!”
