There's also an alternate version of the new set's title track, featuring a verse that was not used on the original rendition on 1985's "Southern Accents" album.

"The Best of Everything" focuses primarily on Petty's hits with the Heartbreakers, including hit singles from the late 1970s and early '80s like "Don't Do Me Like That," "You Got Lucky" and "The Waiting."

The career retrospective also showcases four songs that Petty recorded with his early band, Mudcrutch, and eight solo tracks, including "Free Fallin'," "You Don't Know How It Feels" and "Wildflowers."

News of the upcoming album comes three days after the first anniversary of Petty's death. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer was 66 when he died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs on October 2, 2017.
