Tom Petty unearths Wildflowers-era song “Somewhere Under Heaven” — listen

Consequence of Sound

Long, long before Tom Petty soundtracked a scene from Entourage and had his music lifted by Sam Smith, he released 1994’s superb Wildflowers. His second solo album following Full Moon Fever was the first of three to feature Rick Rubin as producer and spawned hits like “You Don’t Know How It Feels” and “You Wreck Me”.

Now, Petty’s revisiting the classic LP with the forthcoming archival project Wildflowers: All The Rest, which collects together songs that were written between 1992-1994, but ultimately failed to make the final tracklist. According to the singer-songwriter, the original album was meant to be a double album.
