“For Real” is a previously unheard recording from Tom Petty that premiered on the lavish new The Best of Everything box set, which was unveiled in March and is via Geffen Records/UMe, and is truly a must-have for fans of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakerspick up the 2-CD set here or the 4-LP edition here.

Today, a music video for “For Real” premiered. Directed by Tom’s daughter, Adria Petty, the clip features warm behind-the-scenes footage of Petty, his band and archival footage that makes for a very warm tribute from Adria to her late father. Watch it below:

“For Real” serves as a mission statement from the late Petty about his life and career — doing things for himself, on his own terms, rather than as a result of expectations thrown at him by outsiders. It’s a theme that carries throughout The Best of Everything, which serves as a perfect encapsulation of the music legend he was.

May he continue to rest in peace. Via the news release:

As a supplement to last year’s critically lauded box set An American Treasure, The Best Of Everything was born from Petty’s long-term desire to release what he believed to be his strongest material across his four decades of songwriting. His family and band-mates rallied together once again to fulfill his dream. Rather than in chronological order, the special cross-label collection was sequenced as a hard-hitting playlist giving the entire catalog equal prominence.
