I Should Have Known It

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers released the video for "I Should Have Known It" from their forthcoming album Mojo today. This is the third track I've heard from the album (I received two MP3s when I bought tickets to see them in NJ with My Morning Jacket opening this summer) and if the rest of the material is at least as good as the three songs I've heard, then this could very well be one of Tom Petty's best albums. Not THE BEST, but definitely one of his best which is an impressive feat considering his pretty stellar body of work. This particular track sounds like The Black Keys and as a friend pointed out, a little bit like Them Crooked Vultures (the good parts of TCV that is). The other two tracks I heard have a Neil Young, alt-country vibe, so hopefully the whole album has a lot of variety. Personally, I'm really excited to hear it.
