Tom Petty's death did not mark the end of new music from the rock legend. A previously unreleased track from 1982 has been made public ahead of a box set to be released by Reprise Records. Per Variety, the song, called “Keep A Little Soul,” will be among dozens of new, rare, and live recordings that will be included in the four-CD set dubbed An American Treasure. According to Rolling Stone, Petty’s daughter, wife, and former Heartbreakers band members Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell are among those who helped choose the tracks to include from the rocker's formidable body of work. The box set is due out September 28. Petty died last October of an accidental drug overdose. (Later this month, some of the singer's signature clothes and one very special guitar will go up for auction.)
