The song title fits the artist: "For Real". That’s the name of one of the previously unreleased songs from the late Tom Petty.
“For Real” is autobiographical, telling the real-life story of doing things for real. It’s quintessential Petty and The Heartbreakers, but it’s so… sad. We feel sad. Perhaps it’s because his Earthly departure came too soon and we’re not over it. Or perhaps it’s because there aren’t many authentic “real” artists making music in any genre.
“For Real” is featured on Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: The Best of Everything, available March 1st.
