Finding Wildflowers (Alternate Versions)—the latest offering of Tom Petty music, curated with help from his loving family, bandmates and collaborators—will be released on April 16 via Warner Records. The tracks, which were previously released on the limited-edition Super Deluxe 9-LP version of 2020’s Wildflowers & All The Rest, will now be available on limited edition gold vinyl for TomPetty.com and indie retail, CDs and on all digital streaming platforms for the first time.

Leave Virginia Alone,” the lead single and another previously unreleased song from Tom Petty’s long-awaited second half of Wildflowers—a collection he named All The Rest—is out today. Tom wrote “Leave Virginia Alone” in January 1993—very early in the evolution of Wildflowers.

Confusion Wheel,” the first song available from Tom Petty’s long-awaited second, unreleased half of Wildflowers—a collection Tom named All The Rest—is out today and now available with album pre-order.

“Confusion Wheel,” written in 1994, eerily captures the uncertainty of 2020 as if it were written yesterday and somehow twists it with infinite hope.

During Tom Petty’s final interview with the Los Angeles Times, as the triumphant 40th anniversary tour with The Heartbreakers was coming to an end, he announced that his next big focus would be to finally revisit his 1994 masterpiece, Wildflowers, co-produced with Rick Rubin and Mike Campbell.

The Dirty Knobs, the Los Angeles-based rock band featuring celebrated guitarist and songwriter Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Fleetwood Mac) will make their debut in Boulder when they perform at Fox Theatre on October 23, 2021

The Petty Family today releases Tom’s 8 track demo of his classic song “You Don’t Know How It Feels” which will be part of a forthcoming Wildflowers project on Warner Records. Listen here.

The home recording premiered on Tom Petty Radio (channel 31) on SiriusXM yesterday, along with an exclusive interview with Adria Petty about the release.

While thankfulness is inherent to a Deadhead’s makeup, oftentimes, we don’t stop and fully let our gratitude overwhelm us. The Skull & Roses Music Festival in Ventura, California this April 2nd-5th will easily remedy that. Offering a most wonderful setting in a most sacred spot, Skull & Roses provides the perfect opportunity to allow our appreciation to soar. I sense the familiar thrill rise within me as I digest this year's lineup— Billy & the Kids, Oteil & Friends, Jeff Chimenti, Steve Kimock, and George Porter Jr.

The Lil Smokies round out their SnowGhost Singles series with a cover of Tom Petty’s “Learning To Fly”, out today. Listen/Stream here.

“Some artists, even after their time to move on has come, never die,” said guitarist Matthew Rieger (Rev). “Tom Petty is certainly one of them. We hope you'll enjoy our take on one of our favorite tunes of his."

The Rock and Roll Playhouse, a family concert series hosted at Brooklyn Bowl, The Capitol Theatre, Industry City, Ardmore Music Hall, The Sinclair, Boulder Theater, and Thalia Music Hall, allows kids to “move, play and sing while listening to works from the classic-rock canon” (NY Times). Using the songs created by the most iconic musicians in rock history, The Rock and Roll Playhouse offers its core audience of babies and kids games, movement, and stories and an opportunity to rock out.
