Today the world got to hear something from Tom Petty they’ve never heard before. So bittersweet, after losing him last year. The song is called “Keep A Little Soul” and…

Although it was recorded in 1982, during the sessions for the “Long After Dark” album, “Keep A Little Soul” is a new song to fans of Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. I’ll play it on the air today during the Commercial-Free Drive at 5 and you can see the video below.

Now here’s the really exciting part…

There are more “new” songs where that came from and we’ll get to hear ’em all September 28 with the release of the new Tom Petty box set: Tom Petty “An American Treasure”.

Yes. He. Is.

There are several previously unreleased tracks, alternate takes and live cuts included on this career-spanning set.

Below, see the video for one of those previously unreleased tracks, “Keep A Little Soul”. Vintage footage of TP&TH!

Also, Tom’s website has now been updated with all of this information and some awesome vintage footage. Definitely worth checking out.
