Into The Great Unknown is the title track of the 2021 EP release by New Earth Farmers. This song was written not long after Tom Petty passed and there are some subliminal nods to Tom in the lyrics. We are all huge fans of Tom and The Heartbreakers and also fans of The Traveling Wilburys, which influenced the production of the recording. The ending of the video includes a re-enactment of a midnight hallucinogenic experience in a cemetery in southwestern Missouri in the 70s (true story).
A portion of the proceeds made from ticket sales will be donated to the Colorado Healing Fund.
