Tom Petty's 'Wildflowers & All the Rest' due for release

New 23/08/2020

Tom Petty's original double-album vision for the 1994 'Wildflowers' is finally coming to fruition.

The long-awaited expansion, titled 'Wildflowers & All the Rest', will be hitting stores this 16th October, featuring 10 additional songs.

The deluxe version will include 15 home demos and 14 live performances captured between 1995 - 2017.

Five of the 10 songs on 'All the Rest' had never been officially issued, while the remaining five were scattered in one form or other forms of singles, box sets and etc. One of the most notable album was the 1996 'She's the One', which Petty had described as Volume II of Wildflowers. The album featured songs like 'Hope You Never', 'California' and 'Hung Up and Overdue'.

Petty had been working on this reissue project for a long time before his sudden death in 2017. He released the leftover track, 'Somewhere Under Heaven' in 2015, calling it a teaser for a proposed 20th anniversary expanded collection.

At the time, Petty told Rolling Stone that he estimated six unheard songs and 11 or 12 additional songs he wanted to include for this project.

The reissue was clearly on his mind until the end of his time as he performed five of the 18 songs from Wildflowers during his final concert in Los Angeles.

Petty's family and a trio of close musical collaborators had ultimately decided to fulfil his idea - and then some. Ex-Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell, Benmonth Tench longtime engineer and co-producer, Ryan Ulyate, worked on it together in the studio.

Petty's wife, Dana and daughters, Adria and Annakim, described the process as "many, many hours of pure sonic joy."

9 LP - WILDFLOWERS & ALL THE REST – ULTRA DELUXE EDITION

The double-LP will come in a standard two-CD or three-LP package as well as a four-CD or seven-LP deluxe edition. You can also get a five-CD or nine-LP super-deluxe version. Eight previously unreleased tracks are featured on the deluxe version, while the super-deluxe version includes nine.
