Tom Petty's 'An American Treasure' Box Set Has Arrived: Listen
Tom Petty's An American Treasure box set was released today, Sept. 28, by Reprise Records, and is now available for streaming.
The collection includes 60 tracks of unreleased material made throughout the late rock legend's career, including original songs, alternate versions of classic songs, and recordings of historic live performances.
An American Treasure was curated by Petty's daughter Adria and wife Dana, in collaboration with Petty's former Heartbreakers bandmates Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, as well as his former engineer Ryan Ulyate. Campbell, Tench, and Ulyate produced the collection.
"Everyone involved in this project chose each track with tremendous care and deep respect for the body of work Tom Petty created over the course of 40 years," Adria and Dana said in a press release. "He also accumulated a wealth of unreleased music in his vaults, and we have collectively uncovered one gem after another that will keep us all listening and discovering new facets of Tom’s talent for many years to come. We can’t wait to share with Tom’s fans this musical portrait of an artist who deeply affected our culture and indelibly touched the lives of fans the world over."
Earlier this year, Petty became the first act to posthumously hit the Top 10 of the Adult Alternative Songs Chart with "Keep a Little Soul (Outtake, 1982)," the first single off An American Treasure. He died in 2017 at age 66.
