It's been a long wait since 2010 and there's only three more weeks to go before the 13th album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers is released.
According to UNCUT magazine this new album is a return to the rock and roll sounds of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. In an interview with the magazine, Mike Campbell had these words to say in response to the comment, "It's great that even after 40 years of making music together, you and Tom are still excited to discover where the songs can go":
"That's part of why we are still together. If you lose the creative spark, then the game's over. You can't get stuck in one bag too long or you get stagnant. Challenging yourself is the secret to longevity".
There are no links available yet that spotlight the music contained on the new album. As soon as they become available I'll post them. Whilst we wait and count down the days to release day, here's a little look back over the musical career of the band.
