A new Tom Petty video of “For Real” was released today (May 9). The song is one of two previously unreleased tracks that’s included on the recent career-spanning Petty collection, The Best of Everything. The album, on Geffen Records/UMe, was originally announced on October 5, 2018. It’s the first career-spanning collection of all of Petty‘s hits with the Heartbreakers, his solo work and Mudcrutch. The 38-track set, originally scheduled to have a November 16, 2018, street date, was ultimately moved to March 1, 2019 (to avoid conflicting with the American Treasure boxed set released in Fall 2018).

The new hits compilation features two previously unreleased tracks. “For Real” was released to the Tom Petty Radio channel at SiriusXM on Feb. 14 and other platforms on Feb. 15.

The video was directed by Petty’s daughter, Adria Petty, and features archival footage and photos as well as intimate, behind-the-scenes moments of Tom and the band.

The Best of Everything was released simultaneously as a 2-CD set, featuring deluxe packaging, and LP editions—in both black and clear vinyl. (Pre-order the 4-LP set here.) The collection 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.

The collection’s first 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.
