Share on

A new Tom Petty video has been released following the audio’s surfacing.

His daughter, Adria, came across “For Real” while at the house for Heartbreakers guitarist Mike Campbell.

The track was recorded in 2000 but never saw the light of day.

“It hit me pretty hard the first time I heard it,” Adria Petty says to Rolling Stone. “I was told he wrote in his hotel room the night before, and it feels very raw and sincere. It really stood out as something pretty profound, sort of from the grave, right? Just a real assessment of his strange reality of being a living legend. It touches on the things my dad believed in, his core values, like being authentic and not just being part of the pastiche of pop culture.”

The visuals feature vintage photographs of Tom’s life, chronicling the early days to his final moments.

Petty died in October 2017 from an accidental overdose of drugs that included fentanyl, oxycodone and Xanax.
