Set for release on October 16th is the long-awaited Tom Petty box set, Wildflowers & All The Rest. According to the press release for the set, “Tom’s vision of the project is becoming a reality due to the commitment of his loving family, bandmates and collaborators who helped unearth many previously unheard gems. The compilation was curated by Tom’s daughters, Adria and Annakim Petty and his wife Dana Petty who call it, 'Many, many hours of pure sonic joy.'”
Assisting the family were Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench, with the project produced by Petty's longtime engineer and co-producer Ryan Ulyate.
