Late Night FDL: Somewhere Under Heaven

Tom Petty – Somewhere Under Heaven

Tom Petty is set to right his long-ago wrongs with his upcoming album: Wildflowers: All the Rest…

Tom Petty has just released “Somewhere Under Heaven,” co-written with Mike Campbell for 1994′s Wildflowers but left unheard until now. The track, available for purchase now through digital retailers, will be part of a new archival project titled Wildflowers: All the Rest.

Even a brief listen to “Somewhere Under Heaven” places it firmly in context with the original album’s layered complexity. You can hear a sample of the new song above. The three-times platinum Wildflowers, a No. 8 hit that marked the first of three Petty albums co-produced by Rick Rubin, moved with deceptive grace from brawny rockers (“You Wreck Me,” “Cabin Down Below,” “Honey Bee”) to acoustic fragility (the title track, “Time to Move On”) to moving longform narratives (“It’s Good to be King,” “Crawling Back to You”).

And apparently there was much more where that came from. The release of Wildflowers: All the Rest, which features songs written between 1992-94, apparently corrects a wrong that goes back more than two decades. Petty says Wildflowers was originally intended to be a double album.

“Somewhere Under Heaven” can also be heard during the closing credits for the new movie Entourage, which opens this week. Petty’s most recent studio album, last summer’s Hypnotic Eye, became his first-ever U.S. No. 1. It was also his highest-charting U.K. release since Wildflowers went Top 10 20 years ago.

What’s on your mind tonite…?

    the Baltic states and Poland have ample reason to distrust and revile the Russians and to look for allies to help safeguard their borders against Russian expansionism.

  4. June 2, 2015 at 11:17 pm

    Bullshit, Dub…!

    June 2, 2015 at 11:19 pm

    I don’t mind your ignorance of history, tut, just your lack of ability to offer argument and your resort to biliousness.

    look up European history in 1939 concerning Russia, Poland and the Baltic states and put the “bullshit” back up your butt.

    there is nothing vacuous about Stalin’s occupation of the Baltic states and parts of Poland.

    it’s all very, very real and it lasted nearly 50 years.

    if you wish to present any “trained historian”-type refutation of it, please do so, but saying nothing more than “bullshit” is merely churlish.

    ln was created to be a welcoming place where we put aside our differences of the day … neutral space so to speak. as host, i aimed to be welcoming to all no matter how much i personally didn’t want to welcome the very small number of folks who were on my personal ‘fuck off’ list. some times i wasn’t successful in keeping my temper in check but most of the time i was.

    i refused to stoop to their level even when called a fraud and a liar who didn’t care about the lln pups. i just stopped even acknowledging when that particular person came in.

  20. June 3, 2015 at 12:01 am

    Who the f*ck is mentioning Stalin, dub, under the current sitch on the ground….? Get a grip on reality…! *gah*

    Btw, why is the ex-president of Georgia(and US puppet) Saakashvili, renouncing his Georgian ancestory(same heritage as Stalin) and being appointed Odessa’s Governor…?

    tut please re-read what it was that I wrote and which incurred your “bullshit”.

    ” the Baltic states and Poland have ample reason to distrust and revile the Russians and to look for allies to help safeguard their borders against Russian expansionism.”

    can you really say that nearly 50 years of oppressive occupation and exploitation ending only 25 years ago … and which every government official in today’s Poland and Baltic states experienced… not “reality”?

  42. dubinsky
    June 3, 2015 at 1:18 am

    Not sure what you mean about Catherine and our Civil War, starry…as she was as dead as the parrot 60 years before that war.

    but I do know THIS about her.

    ” In a matter of weeks, Russian President Vladimir Putin has gone from showcasing his nation’s culture and athletics at the Winter Olympics in Sochi to sending troops into Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula. The Games captured the world’s imagination but European and North American leaders have condemned the invasion of the Crimea, comparing Putin’s actions to Soviet or Czarist style military aggression.

    Nearly 250 years ago, Empress Catherine II “the Great” played a similar hand when she attempted to impress the West while ruthlessly enforcing her authority over Russia and the surrounding region. Catherine presented herself to the world as an “Enlightened” autocrat who did not govern as a despot but as a monarch guided by the rule of law and the welfare of her subjects. Yet at the same time, she annexed much of what is now the Ukraine through wars with the Ottoman Empire and the partition of Poland and brutally suppressed the largest peasant rebellion in Russian history.”

    again you offer personal insult rather than anything of substance.

    sorry I asked you a civil question.

  81. June 3, 2015 at 2:40 am

    Funny how the most decorated Marine summed it up…

    War is a racket. It always has been. It is possibly the oldest, easily
    the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one
    international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are
    reckoned in dollars and the losses in lives.

    A racket is best described, I believe, as something that is not what
    it seems to the majority of the people. Only a small ‘inside’ group
    knows what it is about. It is conducted for the benefit of the very few,
    at the expense of the very many. Out of war a few people make huge

    I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and
    during that period I spent most of my time as a high class thug for Big
    Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a
    gangster for capitalism.

    I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil
    interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the
    National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping
    of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall
    Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of
    Brown Brothers in 1902–1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic
    for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right
    for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see
    to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested.

    Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The
    best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I
    operated on three continents.

    How many continents is it now…? 8-(

  82. June 3, 2015 at 2:44 am

    He’s their authoritarian plutocrat, with a 80% plus approval rating (we can discuss democracy…) Rising in support of your own slave masters, because they manage to propagandize some distant evil which does not impinge on your rights 1/100 as much as they do, is insanity wrapped in paradoxical enigma.

  84. dubinsky
    June 3, 2015 at 2:52 am

    true…here’s something along that line……

    Muslim Mob Sets Sharia Court On Fire In Nigeria After The Release of Defendant Accused Of Insulting Mohammad

    ” There was a bizarre twist on an all-too-familiar story in Nigeria. An irate mob of Muslim protesters set a court on fire for releasing a man, Malam Abdul Nyass, after he was accused of insulting Mohammad. The crowd demanded his death. What is a bit different is that the court was actually a Sharia court imposing Islamic law and the accused was a cleric.

    Nyass is part of the Tijanniyah sect, which is represents half of the Muslim population with Sunnis representing the other half.

    Nyass was accused of saying that the Tijanniyah leader was more powerful than Mohammad.

    The crowd responded to the decision of the court by throwing flaming tires into the building and burning it.

    Part of the problem of embracing religious codes as a form of law is that it fuels such demands for religious and medieval retribution. It is hard to distinguish between a court that metes out Islamic justice from a mob demanding its own view of religious justice. ”

    Irresponsive and quite myopic.

    Take, for instance, which hosts opinions from the paleo-conservative right, the right-libertarian and various left-libertarian and socialist POVs, all substantially countering the neoliberal/neocon propaganda driven, Atlanticist establishment rentier capitalist dogma.

    Are the interests of the BRIC’s (west installed) oligarchs expressions of anti-western colonialist populism driven selflessness? Not on your life!

    Oligarchs represent, by and large, their own interests. The new – western installed – Russians oligarchs desired to be included in the global bankster club, even Steven. They were repelled by the Anglo-aristos… Hence cock-fight. Putin’s way leads to the same end – autarky. Autarchy here, autarchy there, and before you know what’s up your arse, their entire dick is well-lodged..

    You’re not one of them; you are their shmata. Wake the fuck up, and take the side of the global working class! The 99% of humanity!
