Tom Petty Planning To Release New Album This Summer

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers are set to release a new album called Hypnotic Eye this summer. According to Petty the band plan on returning to their rock roots for the LP:

"I knew I wanted to do a rock n' roll record," he told Rolling Stone. "We hadn't made a straight hard-rockin' record, from beginning to end, in a long time."

He added that the record was truly a collaboration with the Heartbreakers:

"If they're not lighting up, something's wrong. It would be very hard to make this record without a band that has been together this long, with those kind of instincts. I'm relieved to have that."

Hypnotic Eye is expected to feature 11 original tracks.
