Rolling Stone has just reported that there will be a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers posthumous box set called An American Treasure.

Fans were speculating over the countdown timer on Tom Petty's official website, which still has 15 hours to go before the timer ends. 

An American Treasure will mark the first posthumous album since Petty's death in October 2017. SiriusXM has debuted a clip of an unreleased 1982 song called "Keep a Little Soul" on their broadcast.

SiriusXM explains that the 60-track box set will include all previously unreleased studio recordings, live recordings and alternate versions of Petty's songs. Petty's wife and daughter, Dana and Adria helped to select material for the box set with ex-Heartbreakers Benmont Tench, Mike Campbell and Ryan Ulyate. There also will be a two-CD set available.
