RNR News and Notes

Tom Petty passed away unexpectedly last fall, leaving behind almost fifty years of diverse recorded material, ranging from the southern garage rock of his early band Mudcrutch to the pop masterpieces released with his Heartbreakers.

 

Petty’s hugely prolific catalog is about to be augmented even further by the addition of a 60-Song Boxset curated by his family and bandmates and consisting of unreleased songs, outtakes, and rarities.

 

The boxset, titled An American Treasure, is due for a September 28th release and is preceded by the previously unreleased “Keep A Little Soul,” a song that finds Petty in near perfect form. Check it out below, accompanied by a compilation of old performance footage and behind-the-scenes home movies.
