Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers career-spanning Best Of detailed

On February 1st, Geffen Records/UMe will release The Best Of Everything, the first career-spanning collection of all of Tom Petty’s hits with The Heartbreakers, his solo work and Mudcrutch. The 38 track set also features two previously unreleased tracks: the poignant and autobiographical “For Real” and the collection’s lead single — an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for the Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ 1985 album, Southern Accents.

The Best of Everything will be released simultaneously as a 2 CD, featuring deluxe packaging, and in all digital formats. LP editions — in both 4 black and 4 clear vinyl — will arrive on December 7th. The collection also features an essay on Tom Petty written especially for this collection by Academy Award-winning screenwriter, director, author and journalist Cameron Crowe.

All 38 recordings on The Best of Everything have been remastered for this collection from pristine transfers of the original studio multi-track masters.

The collection comes less than two months after Reprise Records releases An American Treasure, a 60 track career-spanning box set. That set features dozens of previously unreleased recordings, alternate versions of classic songs, rarities, historic live performances and deep tracks, including the highly sought-after previously unreleased Wildflowers tracks. An American Treasure marks the first release of Tom Petty music since the artist’s tragic passing in October 2017.
