’s final project, the long-awaited , is out today.

Wildflowers was originally envisioned as a double album in 1994 but Tom’s label encouraged he hold back the second half of the project. Tom waited decades to share the second disc of his masterpiece with fans—a collection he named All The Rest

The Wildflowers sessions were a breeding ground of prolific songwriting and recording, co-produced by Tom with legendary producer Rick Rubin and Mike Campbell. Now all 25 songs are being released as originally envisioned. This collection allows fans to see the entire recording process from demos, to the studio, to the stage, and more. It is a complete look at one of rock music’s most unique and beloved albums.

Wildflowers & All The Rest, which can be streamed/purchased here, is receiving widespread critical praise:

“‘Wildflowers’ the way he always wanted it to be heard”
RollingStone
 

“…the augmented Wildflowers is the best and most justified boxed set of this kind since the Beatles’ White Album compendium.”
Variety

“One of the geeky joys of Wildflowers and All the Rest is observing Petty at the absolute peak of his songwriting powers, making small, intelligent tweaks to these songs in progress.”
The New York Times

“It’s a triumph we only hope Petty enjoys from behind the shimmery screen.”
Esquire

“The new box set ‘Wildflowers & All the Rest,’ produced by [Ryan] Ulyate and curated by Petty’s bandmates and heirs, reimagines ‘Wildflowers’ as the sprawling statement it almost was. A wealth of demos and alternate takes…illuminate a period of creative surge even Petty could never fully explain.”
Los Angeles Times

’s 1994 album Wildflowers has finally reached full bloom.”
USA Today

Yesterday, Tom’s daughter Adria Petty and Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench spoke to CBS This Morning’s Anthony Mason about the new collection, watch here.
