Netting positive notices and a No. 8-landing debut on the Billboard 200, Mudcrutch had a nice moment in the sun. But by all appearances, it looked like Mudcrutch would fade back to historical footnote status when Petty pushed on to record two more albums with the Heartbreakers (2010's Mojo and 2014's Hypnotic Eye, which gave Petty his first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200).
But, surprise -- Mudcrutch is back! Guitarist Mike Campbell (who started in Mudcrutch but transitioned to the Heartbreakers with Petty) revealed to Rolling Stone that "Tom [Petty] wants to make another one. It probably won't take very long. It's a labor of love, really."
