Tom Petty's daughter, filmmaker Adria Petty, has compiled the video for her father's track, "For Real." The previously unreleased song serves as the closing number on the career-spanning Petty compilation, The Best Of Everything. The 38-track set includes two previously unreleased tracks -- "For Real" and an alternate version of the title track, which restores a never-heard second verse to the song that was originally recorded for 1985's Southern Accents album.

Adria spoke about "For Real" to Rolling Stone, admitting, "It hit me pretty hard the first time I heard it. I was told he wrote in his hotel room the night before, and it feels very raw and sincere. It really stood out as something pretty profound, sort of from the grave, right? Just a real assessment of his strange reality of being a living legend. It touches on the things my dad believed in, his core values, like being authentic and not just being part of the pastiche of pop culture.

Tom Petty's daughter, Adria, compiled the footage used for the new video "For Real."

"For Real" was originally recorded in August 2000 by Petty and the Heartbreakers.

The tunes serves as the album closer to the career-spanning Petty compilation, The Best Of Everything.
