This is a single taken from Mojo
, the twelfth studio album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. It was Petty's first record with the Heartbreakers in eight years. Petty's long-time lead guitarist Mike Campbell
told Jam! Music that the blues-based album was inspired by the sound of his recently acquired sunburst '59 Les Paul. "I got a new guitar which is actually an old guitar," he said. "It's the classic Jimmy Page, Peter Green, Eric Clapton-era guitar. There were only 500 or 600 of them made that year. There's just something about the harmonic overtones in it when I picked it up and plugged it in, it immediately had that classic British blues sound. It was kind of eerie.
And Tom had been listening to a lot of blues on our break. So when he heard that guitar, he said, 'Why don't we build an album around that guitar?' It kinda came from that. It was a combination of Tom wanting to explore that aspect of our influence and wanting to feature this guitar."
