On Wednesday, a new music video for “Something Could Happen” was premiered on YouTube after a live stream special documenting Petty’s rich history of video clips. The video stars Lauren Cohan of (of AMC’s The Walking Dead) and chronicles the ups and downs of accepting one’s self and mending a broken heart.

Said director Warren Fu of his video treatment of this Tom Petty track:

“It is an honor to create visuals for this previously unreleased gem. The fact that it was one of Tom’s favorite songs from All The Rest makes it even more special. In looking back on Tom’s old music videos, it was obvious that he had a lot of fun with them and was not afraid to get a bit weird. I wanted to create another modern fairytale in the spirit of Tom’s music video for ‘Into The Great Wide Open.’ Every fairytale has some sort of theme or message. In our story, we have a character that is an incarnation of memories reassembled into a living creature, trying to make its way back home. I think the message I was trying to convey is that all our experiences, the good the bad, the beautiful and the painful make us who we are, and we should embrace them. Tom never compromised his artistic integrity and always stayed true to who he was, so I feel like our message in this video is in line with his spirit. Hints of his presence are also felt throughout the video in easter eggs: The skywriting heart from ‘Free Fallin’,’ a crown for ‘It’s Good To Be King,’ a dog collar with an ‘R’ in a nod to Tom’s dog Ryder, the slow dance dip from ‘Mary Jane’s Last Dance,’ the Alice and the Mad Hatter hat from ‘Don’t Come Around Here No More,’ and the storybook motif from ‘Into The Great Wide Open.’ When Tom’s fans watch this video, I hope they feel the same way I felt hearing the song for the first time: Something new, yet something nostalgic and familiar.”
