Dreamland is the debut album by Robert Miles. It was released on June 7, 1996 in Europe where it was a hit, and was also released in the U.S. about a month later, with a new track sung by Maria Nayler, "One and One". This new track became very popular and was later released as a single in the U.S. and Germany. At the end of 1996, Miles released a new version of Dreamland, called Dreamland — The Winter Edition in Germany. It was largely similar to Dreamland, but contains the tracks "For Us" and "One and One" (which was not released on the European version) and removes "Fable (Dream Version)". Nowadays it appears that the U.S. version of Dreamland including "One and One" (with "One and One" being the sixth track, coming after "In My Dreams" and before "Princess of Light") is the most popular and common version.
