Tom Petty, the singer/songwriter/guitarist who found success in the 1970s and 1980s with his band as Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, died in October 2017 at age 66. Last Friday saw the release of An American Treasure, a 60-track box set that includes dozens of previously unreleased songs. Now a video for one of those tracks, "Gainesville," has been shared. "Gainesville" was recorded in 1998 during Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' sessions for the band's 1999 album Echo. Brantley Gutierrez directed the video, which features archival and home movie footage of Petty (as well as of The Heartbreakers). Watch it below.

A previous press release described the box set as such: "The 60-track set unveils dozens of previously unreleased recordings, alternate versions of classic songs, rarities, historic live performances and deep tracks that spotlight Tom's remarkable depth and evolution as a revered and tremendously influential songwriter, recording artist and performer."

Tom's daughter, Adria Petty, and his wife, Dana Petty, helped put An American Treasure together and issued this joint statement in the previous press release: "Everyone involved in this project chose each track with tremendous care and deep respect for the body of work Tom Petty created over the course of 40 years. He also accumulated a wealth of unreleased music in his vaults, and we have collectively uncovered one gem after another that will keep us all listening and discovering new facets of Tom's talent for many years to come. We can't wait to share with Tom's fans this musical portrait of an artist who deeply affected our culture and indelibly touched the lives of fans the world over."
