Tom Petty Returns To Classic Sound

With out a doubt one of my favorite “garage bands” has been Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. And for a while the band toyed with different sounds when releasing new material. Now it’s back to basics. “Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers have revealed their next album is to be called Hypnotic Eye – and it’s a return to the classic sound of their earliest work.The frontman says they only released what they’d achieved after guitarist Mike Campbell observed: “You sing like you did on the first two albums.”Petty tells Rolling Stone: “I knew I wanted to do a rock’n’roll record. We hadn’t made a straight hard rocking record, from beginning to end, in a long time.”It’s taken nearly three years to get there, but he explains: “You must get the songs. It takes time to write 10 or 11 really good songs.” And it wasn’t plain sailing – when he first played his track American Dream Plan B with his bandmates, the response was complete silence.” http://www.classicrockmagazine.com/news/tom-petty-returns-to-classic-sound/

I wonder if we’ll be able to get the new music on vinyl?
