Watch: Tom Petty’s ‘Wildflowers’ Comprehensive Collection Due in October

Wildflowers, Tom Petty’s 1994 solo album rightfully hailed as his solo masterpiece, is getting its long-awaited reissue. Wildflowers & All The Rest is set to be released on October 16 via Warner Records. Half the songs on Wildflowers were left on the cutting room floor, with Tom writing more songs than he could release at the time.  “I broke through to something else. My personal life came crashing down, and it derailed me for a while. But I was at the top of my game during that record,” he told Rolling Stone in 2014. 

Petty’s family, bandmates, and collaborators are fulfilling the vision he had for a comprehensive project. Daughters Adria and Annakim Petty, wife Dana, Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, and engineer/co-producer Ryan Ulyate have curated a compilation of previously unheard tracks, solo demos, and live performances they call “many, many hours of pure sonic joy.”

Wildflowers & All The Rest—Super Deluxe is a Direct to Consumer Limited Edition set featuring Finding Wildflowers—16 studio recordings of alternate takes of Wildflowers songs as Tom, band members and Rubin honed-in on the final album.

Watch the video for “Wildflowers (Home Recording),” available now with pre-order of the Deluxe Edition, in addition to the recently released “There Goes Angela (Dream Away)” and “You Don’t Know How It Feels.” The video features never-before-seen footage of Tom at his home, shot by Martyn Atkins during the recording of Wildflowers.
