As you already know, Petty passed away last Monday – October 2nd, at the age of 66. It was widely reported that he suffered a cardiac arrest.
On Koenig’s radio show, he was joined by painter Jake Longstreth to discuss Petty’s life and works. The discussed Petty’s track ‘Free Fallin’ at length, with Koenig revealing that it’s his favourite song.

“He’s talking about life being in free fall”, says Koenig, “it’s harsh”. Which is a rare and alternative interpretation of the track, given that it is usually interpreted as being about liberty and freedom.

The two also go on to talk about Vampire Weekend’s attempts at covering Petty’s work, and whether or not Petty could be described as ‘frat rock’.
