A new video for Tom Petty‘s “You and Me” has been released, featuring pictures and video submitted by fans. The video is available below. The new version of the song which comes originally from his 2002 record The Last DJ will be part of the new forthcoming Petty box set, An American Treasure, which will be released on Sept. 28th.
As well as all of the fan-sourced material, which the Petty estate gathered “in honour of Tom Petty and his profound 40-year relationship with his fans,” the “You and Me” video also features Heartbreaker Benmont Tench playing the piano, in footage that was shot this August at the band’s “Clubhouse.”
“You and Me (Clubhouse Version)” is the second song to be released from An American Treasure. The first, “Keep a Little Soul” which was an outtake from 1982’s Long After Dark was released when the box set was announced in July.
An American Treasure comprises of 60 songs across four CDs, as well as a 52-page booklet containing previously unpublished photographs of Petty and his bandmates, family and friends. The booklet of rarities also features detailed, track-by-track liner notes by journalist Bud Scoppa, who drew upon previous interviews with Petty and new conversations with guitarist Mike Campbell, Tench and longtime Petty engineer Ryan Ulyate.
Each CD in An American Treasure focuses on a specific decade in Petty’s career, with a mix of record racks, outtakes, alternate takes, B-sides and live material. All newly released recordings have been mixed by engineer Ulyate from sacred transfers of the original studio multi-track masters. All 60 recordings have been remastered for the collection by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. Artwork for the set was created by artist Shepard Fairey from and the photographic image of Petty by Mark Seliger.
