  • Previously Unreleased “Confusion Wheel” Available Now


    “Confusion Wheel,” the first song available from Tom Petty’s long-awaited second, unreleased half of Wildflowers—a collection Tom named All The Rest is out today and now available with album pre-order.
    “Confusion Wheel,” written in 1994, eerily captures the uncertainty of 2020 as if it were written yesterday and somehow twists it with infinite hope.

    One of these days my old friend

    You and I won't worry no more

    One of these nights it'll all wash away

    And we'll wake up singing a brand-new song

    We'll wake up singing a whole new song

    —“Confusion Wheel”

    Yesterday, Heartbreaker Benmont Tench and Tom’s longtime engineer and co-producer Ryan Ulyate spoke to David Fricke and premiered the previously unreleased song on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio. Listen/share “Confusion Wheel,” alongside a visualizer featuring artwork by Blaze Ben Brooks HERE.
