Tom Petty fans got a treat last fall in An American Treasure, an extensive posthumous box set featuring songs from the rock icon’s extensive catalog.

Next month the fans will get The Best of Everything, a new greatest hits collection featuring 38-tracks from Petty’s career. You’ll find tracks from The Heartbreakers, his first band Mudcrutch, his solo work and even two previously unreleased songs. The Best of Everything arrives on March 1st in a 2-CD box set (and digital) and includes a poignant essay on Petty from Cameron Crowe.

One of those, an alternate version of the title track, we heard in October. The second one, a softer song titled “For Real”, has been revealed and you can check it out below.
