Tom Petty Career-Spanning ‘Best of Everything’ Due

Share This:

Geffen Records/UMe has announced the release The Best Of Everything, the first career-spanning collection of all of Tom Petty‘s hits with the Heartbreakers, his solo work and Mudcrutch. The 38-track set, originally scheduled to have a November 16 street date, has been moved to February 1, 2019 (perhaps to avoid conflicting with the American Treasure boxed set).

The new hits compilation features two previously unreleased tracks: “For Real” (described in the announcement as “poignant and autobiographical”) and the collection’s lead single—an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 1985 album, Southern Accents.

Listen to the track below.

The Best of Everything will be released simultaneously as a 2-CD set, featuring deluxe packaging, and LP editions—in both black and clear viny. (Pre-order the 4-LP set here.) The collection, announced October 5, also features an essay on Tom Petty written especially for this collection by Academy Award-winning screenwriter, director, author and journalist Cameron Crowe.

All 38 recordings on The Best of Everything have been re-mastered for this collection from pristine transfers of the original studio multi-track masters.
