    "Runnin' Down a Dream" is the album's sole cover, and Campbell notes that "whenever I do a cover song I don't really choose it. They just kind of choose me... It'll just be all of a sudden, 'Oh, I'll do that.'" She started working on her version of the Tom Petty song back in 2012, gradually finding a way to put her stamp on something that's become an established favorite in his canon. "The lyrics are kind of mysterious and poetic and I could just related to them, somehow. I know it's a rock anthem, but it's incongruous to what I do, so I had this idea of having more of a psychedelic version and using more synthesizer to set the tone." And had things gone according to plan Campbell's cover might have been out while Petty was still alive. "I was sad about that," she says. "It was such a shock, really. I didn't think he would be the next to go -- no one did, I'm sure. I just thought he would be around for a lot longer. I remember before finishing the record, we had a little cabin in Woodstock where we were mixing and I remember watching the (Petty) documentary Runnin' Down a Dream and thinking about how great he was." https://bit.ly/2TA4IYT
