Today, the Tom Petty Estate have shared the first previously unreleased track “Confusion Wheel” track from the upcoming Wildflowers & All the Rest box set, which is set to arrive on October 16th (pre-order here). It's the third preview from the extensive collection that was first deuted with a demo version of “You Don’t Know How It Feels” in June, followed by “There Goes Angela (Dream Away”) in August.

“Confusion Wheel” is an introspective waltz, in ode to all that we don’t understand, with Petty calmly concluding that “we will wake up singing a brand-new song.” It’s a reassuring mantra in light of modern times. Listen below.

Petty originally recorded the track back in 1994 during the original Wildflowers sessions, during which he, Rick Rubin and Mike Campbell produced enough material for a double album of 25 songs, before shortening the album to a single disk upon release. All the Rest was a title chosen by Petty for the unreleased half of these sessions. 

The new reissue, Wildflowers & All the Rest will arrive as a five-CD or nine-LP box set, on October 16th. Pre-order here.
