Tom Petty‘s original band Mudcrutch have finally completed work on their self-titled debut album, 35 years after they started it.
Originally named The Sundowners, the band comprising two Heartbreakers Mike Campbell and Benmont Trench have reunited with original guitarist Tom Leaden and drummer Randall Marsh.
Explaining why Petty has finally completed work on his orignal band’s album, the singer has said: “I made a commitment at the beginning of this project that I wanted it to be Mudcrutch done as it was back in the day. I really wanted it to be that band.”
He added: “I guess I started thinking that we left some music back there, and it was time to go and get it.”
The first track from the album is to be “Scare Easy”, released on May 12.
The album is out on May 26, on Reprise.
