Tom Petty's concept for his third solo album is laid bare in its very title: it's called Highway Companion, which is a tip-off that this record was made with the road in mind.
Highway Companion, Tom Petty's third solo album and first in a dozen years, is a timeless album about the passing of time. A constant companion on the road of rock n' roll, Petty, says Rolling Stone, is "rock aristocracy". Four years after he took Elvis Costello's advice and bit the music/radio biz hands that have simultaneously fed and frustrated him for decades on the scabrous The Last DJ, Tom Petty returned to the studio with more personally introspective matters on his mind
If you don’t run, you rust, Tom Petty sings on his new album, Highway Companion. If this echo of Neil Young (and his motto, It’s better to burn out than it is to rust ) weren’t enough, the lazy country-rock-stomp intro of Turn This Car Around and This Old Town make Petty’s new songs sound like outtakes from Young’s Harvest album
