Dreamin' My Dreams is a 1976 album by singer Marianne Faithfull. It is Faithfull's first and only record of country music. The album was re-released two years later in 1978 as Faithless. The main difference between the albums is the album art, and some tracks are rearranged.[3] The musicians on both versions of the album are The Grease Band. It was Faithfull's first album in almost a decade and it was released on the small London-based NEMS label.

The single "Dreamin' My Dreams" topped the charts in Ireland in 1976. Waylon Jennings and Crystal Gayle had recorded versions of the song in 1975. It was later recorded by Patty Loveless, Alison Krauss, Cowboy Junkies, Mark Chesnutt, Emmylou Harris with Rodney Crowell amongst others.
