If you’re a fan of dearly departed rock icon Tom Petty, or just of rock and roll in general, you might be used to the idea that there’s no new Petty music for you to look forward to in the future. Not so, as it turns out, with the announcement of a career-spanning box set of unreleased tracks, plus live performances, alternate takes, deep cuts, and other rarities. It’s called An American Treasure.
The complete “Super Deluxe” version of An American Treasure will contain 60 tracks handpicked by Petty’s surviving daughter and widow, Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, and frequent collaborator Ryan Ulyate, and will sport artwork by Shepard Fairey. And one of those tracks, “Keep A Little Soul,” recorded in 1982, has been released on all the major streaming platforms. Take a listen:
An American Treasure is scheduled for release sometime in September. Read up on the box set, including the full official track list, right here.
