Tones and I has released a new song called “Fly Away.”

The track, which Tones and I wrote during lockdown amid the COVID-19 pandemic, reflects the Australian artist’s journey from street busker to platinum-selling musician.

“‘Fly Away’ is about chasing your dreams, reaching your goals and the realities that comes with it,” Tones and I says. “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,’ she adds. “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.”

“Fly Away” is the fourth Tones and I single of 2020, following “Bad Child,” “Can’t Be Happy All the Time” and “Ur So F***ing Cool.” She released her debut EP, The Kids Are Coming, featuring the hit single “Dance Monkey,” in 2019.
