Sheryl Crow Releases Haunting New Song 'The Dreaming Kind'

Sheryl Crow's new song, "The Dreaming Kind," has the kind of significance that you simply can't ignore as the track is devoted to the fifth anniversary of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School that killed 20 students and six educators in the US.

"The Dreaming Kind" debuted as part of the Sandy Hook Promise's latest Public Service Announcement called "Tomorrow's News".

The Sandy Hook Promise is an organisation that trains students and adults to know the signs of gun violence so that "no other parent experiences the senseless, horrific loss of their child".

Written and sung by Crow, the track is meant to show how one can make a change in the tide, with the singer/songwriter telling the tale of tragedy turning into transformation and hope.

"I didn't know what I was going to do with it and then suddenly we were presented with the Sandy Hook Promise and the opportunity to have a song for it," Crow revealed on Good Morning America of the song. "I said, 'I just have written this song which is basically about what they went through.'"


The track features Sheryl's niece Ava, who brings a haunting addition to the song, as she is only a child herself.

"The Dreaming Kind" is available as a name-your-price download on with a minimum contribution of .99 cents.

Proceeds from the download will go to Sandy Hook Promise and contributions greater than the listed value are accepted and appreciated.
