Tom Petty ‘An American Treasure’ Boxed Set Track List Revealed, New Song Drops

As announced on SiriusXM yesterday, on September 28, Reprise Records will release “An American Treasure” — a career-spanning Tom Petty box set containing dozens of previously unreleased recordings, alternate versions of classic songs, rarities, historic live performances and deep tracks. The set marks the first release of Tom Petty music since the artist’s passing in October 2017.

The first single from the set is “Keep A Little Soul,” a previously unreleased recording from 1982 sessions that resulted in Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers’ album, “Long After Dark.”

According to the announcement on a redesigned Petty website, Tom’s daughter, Adria, and his wife, Dana, were the primary catalysts for the commission, creation and release of “An American Treasure.” Both serve as the project’s Executive Producers, and, together with Tom’s bandmates of 45 years, Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, and his studio collaborator, Ryan Ulyate, curated the box set’s track list

“Everyone involved in this project chose each track with tremendous care and deep respect for the body of work Tom Petty created over the course of 40 years,” Adria and Dana said.  “He also accumulated a wealth of unreleased music in his vaults, and we have collectively uncovered one gem after another that will keep us all listening and discovering new facets of Tom’s talent for many years to come.  We can’t wait to share with Tom’s fans this musical portrait of an artist who deeply affected our culture and indelibly touched the lives of fans the world over.”

The custom cover artwork for “An American Treasure” was created by American artist Shepard Fairey from an image of Petty by photographer Mark Seliger.

The set will be released in multiple formats:

“An American Treasure: 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, who drew upon his previous interviews with Tom and new conversations with Mike Campbell, Benmont Tench and Ryan Ulyate, as well as Adria and Dana Petty.

“An American Treasure: 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 – written especially for An American Treasure – that speaks to Tom Petty’s presence in our lives and influence on our culture for more than 40 years.  This special package also includes a newly-created lithograph of Shepard Fairey’s cover artwork, as well as custom reproductions of Tom Petty’s handwritten lyrics to four songs featured in this collection and a numbered certificate of authenticity.

“An American Treasure: 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.  This special Vinyl Edition will be released on Friday, November 23, but is available for pre-order now.

“An American Treasure: 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.
