Next week, a new Tom Petty box set called An American Treasure will be released, and it contains four CDs worth of unreleased and hard-to-find Petty music. The collection includes live and studio material and spans from his Heartbreakers days to the years preceding his death. We’ve heard a couple selections from it, a new song called “Keep A Little Soul” and an alternate version of “You And Me.”
Today, we get to hear a previously unreleased track called “Gainesville,” an ode to Petty’s hometown, which he was always very proud of and spoke about often. The song was recorded in February 1998, during the same sessions that resulted in the Heartbreakers’ 1999 album Echo.
Listen to it below.
An American Treasure is out 9/28 via Reprise Records. Pre-order it here.
