Noted Tom Petty fans Spoon have shared recordings of two Tom Petty covers. Their renditions of “Breakdown” (which was broadcast last year as part of a virtual Petty birthday concert last year) and “A Face in the Crowd” were tracked live at the Catacomb in Austin. Find both below.
Britt Daniel was recently a guest DJ on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio. Last year, the band launched a reissue campaign, which followed the release of a greatest hits album in 2019. A reissue of Tom Petty’s Wildflowers also arrived last year.
