SotD - Tom Petty


The Best Of Everything, the first career-spanning collection of Tom Petty's hits, was released over the weekend. Listen to the single from it, For Real...

Press Release

The Best Of Everything features songs from his solo projects, songs with The Heartbreakers, as well as essentials from the reformed Mudcrutch and was born from Petty's long-term desire to release what he believed to be his strongest material across his four decades of songwriting so Petty's family and band-mates rallied together to fulfil his dream. Rather than in chronological order, the special cross-label collection was sequenced as a hard-hitting playlist giving the entire catalogue equal prominence.

Throughout his storied career, Petty did everything with authenticity, putting the music and his fans first. It is this sentiment that Petty sings about in the poignant and autobiographical song "For Real"—the latest single and previously unreleased track on the collection.




The Best Of Everything also features an essay on Petty written especially for this collection by his close friend, Academy Award-winning screenwriter, director, author and journalist Cameron Crowe.

All recordings on the set are newly mastered from the original stereo tapes and digital files by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, with supervision by Ryan Ulyate.
