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.
