New Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Album Out This Summer, Tour to Follow

 

It’s shaping up to be a busy 2014 for Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, with a new album set for release this summer and a supporting tour in the works.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, even Petty can’t believe he’s still working at such a hectic pace stating, "I never expected to be at this point, doing stuff and figuring out how to get it to people."

The new record, titled Hypnotic Eye, will mark a return to a more rock sound, as opposed to the band’s 2010 album Mojo, which was a heavily blues-influenced record.  Petty says the band intends on touring following Hypnotic Eye's release, however, no dates are set in stone.

Don't know about you, but as much as I loved Mojo, this "American Girl" is really excited about Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers churning out a new ROCK record.
