The album features some of the most beloved and enduring songs of the last century, including “I’ll Take You Home,” “My Favorite Things” and “Don’t Stop Believin’.”
The album was written by Petty and the band and recorded in a studio at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The group was originally slated to perform at this year’s Grammy Awards, but the band decided to postpone the event and focus on a new album.
Petty said they’re still working on it.
In addition to the songs, the album features a new arrangement of the classic “Auld Lang Syne” and includes a cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Rock and Roll.”
The album also features new music by Petty’s longtime band, the Petty-era Heartbreakers.
Petty’s band, which has been touring the world for the last four years, recently recorded the album in their home studio in Florida.
The album includes new songs written by Heartbreakers bassist Nick Stoller, who also worked with Petty on his hit album “American Bandstand.”
“This is the greatest thing I’ve ever written,” said Petty, who has been recording music for over 20 years.
“It’s not the kind of album that people listen to on repeat and never forget.”
The new album also includes new material from Petty’s Heartbreakers band, including songs written and recorded by former Heartbreakers drummer John Prine, who is credited as the songwriter.
The songs were written as part of a collaboration with Prine in 2008, but Prine left the band in 2010.
Prine has been the primary songwriter for Petty’s other bands, including the Heartbreakers and the Heart of Gold, for the past decade.
He has written new songs for the band for the album, including one titled “Disco.”
The band recently played a concert at a beach in Orlando.
In an interview with Billboard, Petty said he was grateful to be back in the spotlight.
“I feel blessed to be on this journey with my band and to be doing this in front of people who I’ve worked with for years,” he said.
“It’s really exciting to be able to share the music I wrote with this world.”
The song, “I Can’t Breathe,” was originally written by the Heartbreaker’s frontman, Tim Sult, in 1994, when Sult was a student at the University of Southern California.
The song was inspired by the experience of hearing the song while sleeping in a hotel room.
It was Petty’s favorite song when he was a kid.
He said he had written it on a scrap of paper and that he had played it to his friends.
“This was the most important song I ever wrote,” he recalled.
“I thought about it in my head, and then I started writing it.”
In 2010, the song became a hit with Petty and Sult’s band.
The band released a video for the song in which they played the song at their concert in Los Angeles.
Petty told Billboard that it was one of the songs he was most excited about working on with his band.
“When we were writing this song, it was the first song that came to mind for us,” he explained.
“And that’s the way I wanted it to sound.”
The recording of the new record was done in a different studio, which was built in the Hollywood Hills, than the studio that had previously recorded the previous album.
The studio was also more intimate, with a soundproof chamber and a studio table in the middle of the room.
“There was more intimacy to this studio,” Petty said.
“We were able to use the room more as a studio, so we could record a lot of the tracks in a room with a lot more intimacy.”
The musicians of the Heartbreak group have been known to collaborate with the band on songs that have never been released on the album.
During a recent tour in North Carolina, Petty had a small recording session with the Heartbreaking group while the band was on the road.
“We’re friends and have a good time,” he told Billboard.
“This was just an opportunity for us to do some work together.
This was just a chance to really hear each other and be able share what we love.”
The Heartbreak songs have been recorded in different venues throughout the country, including at the Hollywood Bowl and at a music festival in Florida, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
