Tonight’s New Music Stash featured band: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – For Real
“For Real,” another previously unreleased song from Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, is debuting today. 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.”
“For Real” is featured on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: The Best Of Everything, dueMarch 1 via Geffen Records/UMe as a supplement to last year’s critically lauded, career-spanning box set An American Treasure. The Best Of Everything was born from Petty’s long-term desire to release what he believed to be his greatest hits and strongest material across his four decades of songwriting.
The Best of Everything will be released simultaneously as a 2-disc CD featuring deluxe packaging, LP editions in both black and clear vinyl, and in all digital formats. The 38-track set also includes an additional previously unreleased song: an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-before heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for the Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers’ 1985 album, Southern Accents.
