Get ready Tom Petty fans! Coming September 28, 2018 Reprise Records will be releasing “An American Treasure,” a Tom Petty box set featuring 60 tracks and dozens of previously unreleased recordings, historic live performances and a selection of deep tracks as well. The “An American Treasure” box set will be the first release of Tom Petty music since his unexpected passing back in October of 2017.
“Keep A Little Soul” is the first released track from the new set. It’s a previously unreleased recording from the 1982 sessions that birthed the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ album, Long After Dark. There is a very cool video that has been released for the new song as well which features never-before-seen footage of the band. You can check out the video below!
The An American Treasure box set is going to be released in multiple formats:
- Deluxe Edition—A 4-CD set that features all 60 tracks, plus a 52-page booklet with rare and previously unseen photographs of Tom, his bandmates, family and friends. The booklet also features detailed track-by-track liner notes by noted journalist and Tom Petty aficionado Bud Scoppa.
- Super Deluxe Limited Edition—A 4-CD set that features all 60 tracks and an 84-page hardbound book expanded from the Deluxe Edition to include many additional photographs and an essay by renowned author Nicholas Dawidoff.
- Vinyl Edition—A 6-LP set that features all 60 tracks and a 48-page booklet containing all of the photographic and editorial elements found in the CD Deluxe Edition. This set also includes the Nicholas Dawidoff essay.
- Standard Edition—A 2-CD set that features 26 career spanning tracks chosen from the Deluxe editions, as well as Bud Scoppa’s detailed track-by-track.
If you’re a Petty fan on any level, this is a box set that must be added to your collection. Even though we tragically lost Tom Petty last year, his music lives on in our hearts, our minds and our memories forever.
