Listen to Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers previously unreleased song "Gainesville"

A stream of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers’ previously unreleased track Gainesville has been released.

As part of their upcoming box set An American Treasure set to arrive September 28th, Gainesville was originally recorded during the sessions for 1999 album Echo.

"Echo is supposedly Pettys dark album," An American Treasure producer Ryan Ulyate told Rolling Stone. "But 'Gainesville' is this guy looking back on this early life. It is very self-referential from a guy who has some nostalgia for a simpler time. I love the song. It's just great, but I can see how it didn't necessarily fit the vibe of Echo."

An American Treasure is a 60-track set that unveils dozens of previously unreleased recordings, alternate versions of classic songs, rarities, historic live performances and deep tracks that spotlight Tom’s remarkable depth and evolution as a revered and tremendously influential songwriter, recording artist and performer. An American Treasure marks the first release of Tom Petty music since the artist’s tragic passing in October 2017.
