What could be better than Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers rocking across the land?  How about a new album plus special guest Steve Winwood on the ticket? The first round of onsales begins at the end of the month.

Hypnotic Eye is the name of the new album for Petty and his Heartbreakers.  Scheduled for a July 29 release, their first new album in four years has already received some attention, with Rolling Stone describing the disc as “ a decisive return to the concise Sixties-rock classicism of his first great New Wave era albums.”  But if that’s too lofty a synopsis for you, the magazine that Jann Wenner built also said Hypnotic Eye is “maximum rock & roll.”

You have plenty of choices when it comes to purchasing Hypnotic Eye, including vinyl and Blu-ray audio editions as well as on CD.  For vinyl lovers the album will be released as a single disc but you can snag it as a double record set that includes an additional track not available in any other format.  Preorder Hypnotic Eye on iTunes and Amazon beginning June 3 and you’ll receive an instant download of the first of several tracks from the album.

Yesterday, Petty tweeted a tease about playing Boston’s Fenway Park.
