The estate of Tom Petty has released a new video as a preview to the upcoming release of Finding Wildflowers (Alternative Versions).

The video below is for “You Saw Me Comin’,” and it features bold, picturesque footage of various nature landscapes. Per the video’s YouTube description, “‘You Saw Me Comin’,’ a previously unreleased song and recording from 1992 and the final track on the collection, is premiering alongside a video directed by Joel Kazuo Knoernschild and Katie Malia.”

The description continues, “Reflecting upon recording ‘You Saw Me Comin” for ‘Wildflowers,’ Benmont Tench notes, ‘There’s this kind of longing in the song, in the way that he wrote the chord structure, the melody and the lyrics. It’s wistful, and it would have been the perfect way to end the disc.'”

Finding Wildflowers (Alternative Versions) is made up of 16 tracks that were previously released on the limited-edition Super Deluxe 9-LP and 5 CD formats of the 2020 reissue Wildflowers & All The Rest.

Finding Wildflowers (Alternative Versions) is due out on April 16 on digital formats, while physical formats come out on May 7. All formats are available for pre-order here.
