Hynotic Eye coming soon...
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' new album, Hynotic Eye, is available for pre-order now on iTunes and the band's official website. It will be released on July 29 through Reprise Records.
If you pre-order the album in any format from either location (or if you're a member of the band's Highway Companions Club), you'll get downloads of five songs from the album before the release date. Three of the songs will be delivered immediately (starting today) with the others arriivng on June 24 and July 15, respectively. The songs include "American Dream Plan B" (currently streaming on Soundcloud and Rollingstone.com) and "U Get Me High", which was sent to radio stations this morning. This is the band's first album since 2010's Mojo (which itself was their first since 2002).
Shows for the band's tour, with special guest Steve Winwood, are on sale now. Shows at the DTE Energy Music Theater in Clarkston, Michigan and the Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado are on sale soon. The tour begins on August 3 at the Viejas Arena in San Diego and will visit the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival in San Francisco (August 9), Boston's Fenway Park (August 20), New York's Madison Square Garden (September 10), Anaheim's Honda Center (October 7) and L.A.'s The Forum (October 10). Every ticket includes a free download of the album.
Rolling Stone said the album was "maximum rock & roll" and "a decisive return to the concise '60s-rock classicism of his first great New Wave era albums."
It will be available as an 180 gram 2-LP vinyl (with an extra song from the album sessions), an 140 gram 1-LP vinyl, a high-definition blu-ray audio disc (with an extra song), a digital download in MP3 or FLAC formats or a Standard CD.
