TORONTO — Here is your chance to listen to the new album from Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers before it comes out on July 29.
Global News is offering this preview of Hypnotic Eye, the first new studio album from the band in four years.
“I knew I wanted to do a rock and roll record,” Petty told Rolling Stone. “We hadn’t made a straight hard-rockin’ record, from beginning to end, in a long time.”
In an interview with Men’s Journal, Petty said: “What great band hasn’t done some absolute s***? So I’m kind of to a point where, if I’m gonna do it, I want it to be good.”
Petty, 63, and the Heartbreakers — Mike Campbell, Scott Thurston, Benmont Tench, Ron Blair and Steve Ferrone — released their self-titled debut album in 1976 and have gone on to sell more than 60 million records.
Their hits include “Don’t Come Around Here No More” and “Learning to Fly”.
The group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2002.
Hypnotic Eye will be available as a CD, digital download, Blu-ray audio, and on vinyl.
A tour in support of the new album will stop in Vancouver on Aug. 14, Edmonton on Aug. 17, Calgary on Aug. 19, Winnipeg on Aug. 21, Toronto on Aug. 26 and Montreal on Aug. 28.
Every ticket purchase includes a copy of Hypnotic Eye.
