The release date for Tom Petty’s long awaited album Wildflowers & All The Rest is set for October 16, 2020. According to Rolling Stone, the album’s 20th anniversary re-issuance complete with 10 previously unreleased songs was first expected to be released by Christmas 2014. Petty explained, ““I broke through to something else. My personal life came crashing down, and it derailed me for a while. But I was at the top of my game during that record.”

    The additional unreleased songs recorded during the Wildflower sessions were intended to be included on another album called Wallflowers: All the Rest , according to Ultimate Classic Rock. Quickly pointing out that the additional songs were not outtakes, Petty stated, “The original plan was to release it as the complete Wildflowers album with the original album and this,” he said. “And Warner Bros. came back to us and said, ‘Look, this is far too good a record to just send straight to the catalog racks. We’re going to put it out as its own album.’ I was behind that decision too. It’s done and we’re eventually going to put it out. It’s just sitting there finished, so I’m waiting to hear when they’re going to put it out. I think people are going to like it a lot. I like it a lot.”

    As of the end of 2016, there was still no word when the Wildflowers album would be reissued, however according to Jambase, Petty started publically discussing the possibility of a Wildflower tour in 2017 in a Rolling Stone interview stating, “I want to take the Heartbreakers and whoever else I need to reproduce every sound in a big way,” Petty continued, “That album was really about sound in a big way. I would like to go out there and perform the entire album as it was originally conceived with all of the songs.”

    Unfortunately, Petty died the next year and never lived to see his dreams for Wildflowers come to fruition. Now, according to a press release, “Tom’s vision of the project is becoming a reality due to the commitment of his loving family, bandmates and collaborators who helped unearth many previously unheard gems.” Wildflowers & All The Rest was curated by Petty’s wife Dana Petty and his two daughters, Adria and Annakim Petty. Dana Petty calls Wildflowers & All The Rest “Many, many hours of pure sonic joy.”
