"Sleeping Awake" (often mistitled as "Sleeping Away") is the lead single by P.O.D. from The Matrix Reloaded: The Album. The film soundtrack was released on May 6, 2003 by Warner Bros. Records/Maverick Records with the single itself available May 26. The US edition only includes the title track while the UK/Australia edition, released June 3, includes the video and two more songs.
"Sleeping Awake" marked the P.O.D. video debut of guitarist Jason Truby. During shooting of the video, Sandoval confessed that while the band had seriously considering breaking up after the departure of Marcos Curiel, "[Jason] did us a favor by helping us out with this song, and then once it was all said and done it kind of confirmed that maybe we should keep doing what we loved--and that's making music. . . So now he's helping us do that.
