The estate of Tom Petty will be working to release and unearth some of the recordings in his vault that never may have seen the light of day, and today the team has put out a new, unreleased track called “For Real” which is due out on The Best of Everything on March 1st.
Throughout his storied career, Petty did everything with authenticity-putting the music and his fans first. It is this sentiment that Petty sings about in the poignant and autobiographical song “For Real.”
You can hear the track below.
