Stream Tom Petty’s Complete New ‘Hypnotic Eye’ Album
Petty is scheduled to play the Cross Insurance Center in Portland on Aug. 31 and the buzz surrounding this upcoming show has been intense since Petty announced that he was going to play his first ever concert in Portland. Fans who purchased tickets for the Portland show also received a free copy of Petty’s new album.
The record’s full-length debut, which arrives a week ahead of its July 29 release date, comes as part of NPR’s First Listen series, which has played host to an admirably eclectic array of artists including Jenny Lewis, Shabazz Palaces, and Morrissey — and arrives after a number of pre-release digital single releases that have whetted fans’ appetites for the new album one track at a time.
The timing might be a little curious, as Petty only recently debuted an online player that streams five cuts from the record, and it was less than a week ago that the ‘Hypnotic Eye’ cut ‘Fault Lines’ was posted. But we’re not complaining — we’ve been waiting to hear this album since it was announced in the spring, and being treated to it a week ahead of the street date is the kind of cool surprise that just might make your Monday.
