LISTEN: Tom Petty's Family Releases "You Don't Know How It Feels" Demo

It looks like one of Tom Petty's long-gestating passion projects is finally about to surface. According to his daughter, Adria Petty, a collection of leftovers and alternate takes from his beloved 1994 solo album,Wildflowers, should be coming out sometime in 2020. "Just because of the way that the world is at the moment, the supply chains and whatnot, I don’t want to make any promises or break any hearts, but I think we’re getting really close, and I’m really excited," she said in a radio interview. To tease the reissue, Petty's family also released an eight-track home demo version of “You Don’t Know How It Feels," which features slightly different lyrics. Petty, who died in 2017, had long talked about releasing an expanded version of Wildflowers,which is how he intended it to be issued originally. Adria Petty noted the forthcoming reissue is coming together “with the community of the Heartbreakers that my dad had in a really holistic way. We waited so that we could do that in a really beautiful and thorough way. And we’ve just been having so much fun with everybody and working with Dana [Petty’s second wife] and the band and everybody to just really put this masterpiece in the framing that it deserved."
