A brand new single from the forthcoming box set entitled "An American Treasure" has been released! It's the first single since his death in 2017 and it comes in the form of the 1998 recording of "Gainsville." It is a previously unreleased track from the Echo recording sessions.
It serves as the third single from the box set which is due out next week on September 28th and pays homage to the late rock legend's Florida hometown. The box set itself includes 60 tracks on four CDs.
“If you knew nothing about the guy,” says Ryan Ulyate, Petty's longtime producer, “It would still be a really good set of songs you could get into and love. It’s designed to tell you a story.”
