Long-awaited reissue for Tom Petty's beloved 1994 solo work Wildflowers!

Massive reissue w/ originally-planned 25-song album

Plus unreleased songs, home studio recordings, alternate takes, live renditions, more!

"I finished listening for sonic blemishes, of which there were not many, I went back for a 'listen for pleasure' session (over two days) and I'll tell you that if you are a Tom Petty fan, you will not regret getting at least the 7 if not the 9 LP sets. The sound is uniformly 10-11 on the AnalogPlanet sonic scale. In case you are wondering, the original album here is not sourced from the 2015 all-analog reissue. They went back and re-mastered it from the original tape for this box." — Michael Fremer, AnalogPlanet.com. Read Fremer's full review here.

Tom Petty's 1994 album Wildflowers is getting a comprehensive new reissue with unreleased songs, demos, home recordings, live performances, and alternate recordings. Wildflowers & All the Rest is out October 16, 2020 via Warner. Listen to an unreleased home recording of the album's title track below.

The new collection was curated by Tom's daughters Adria and Annakim Petty, his wife Dana Petty, and his Heartbreakers bandmates Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench. The set was produced by Tom's longtime engineer and co-producer Ryan Ulyate.

The 7LP Deluxe Edition of Wildflowers and All the Rest contains 54 tracks, eight unreleased songs, and 24 unreleased alternate versions. In addition to the 15-track original album (remastered on two LPs), the deluxe edition contains the album All The Rest (10 songs from the original Wildflowers sessions), a double LP of 15 solo demos recorded by Petty at his home studio, and an additional double LP of 14 live versions of Wildflowers songs recorded from 1995 — 2017. The deluxe packaging includes a 60-page book, an introduction by Rick Rubin (the original producer), an essay by David Fricke, a complete track-by-track, and rare photos and specially commissioned illustrations.

The Petty, Rick Rubin and Mike Campbell-produced sessions for Wildflowers yielded enough material for a double-album filled with 25 songs. However, the label advised that Petty pare it down as a single disc, with unused tracks either winding up on Petty's She's the One soundtrack or in the archives, like "Somewhere Under Heaven," which appears in the box set. "I did not remember writing it, recording it, anything," Petty told Rolling Stone in 2014. "And it was really good - uptempo but very unusual, in some strange time signature."
