Tom Petty’s daughter Adria created a video for his previously unreleased song, “For Real.”
The track is featured on the recently released compilation, The Best of Everything. Adria told Rolling Stone that the song was written in 2000, but had never been released. “It hit me pretty hard the first time I heard it,” she admitted. “I was told he wrote in his hotel room the night before, and it feels very raw and sincere.”
The video was created using concert and studio footage as well as rare pictures. The production process took an understandably emotional toll on Adria.
“I was crying my eyes out every night during the edit,” she said. “But he raised me to finish my shit. There was work to do and you had to get it done. But it’s nice to hear his voice. It’s nice to see him doing what made him happy, and it’s nice to have the ability to tell a story about him and share that with people.”
