(Radio.com) Tom Petty is planning to reissue 1994's classic Wildflowers and tour to support it. The album was originally planned as a double album but was ultimately released as a single album. The reissue and the tour will address the tracks that didn't make the original version.

"I want to take the Heartbreakers and whoever else I need to reproduce every sound in a big way," he tells Rolling Stone. "That album was really about sound in a big way. I would like to go out there and perform the entire album as it was originally conceived with all of the songs."

While Wildflowers was a solo album, two of the principal Heartbreakers - guitarist Mike Campbell and keyboardist Benmont Tench, who are also members of Mudcrutch - played on the album. Petty supported Wildflowers with a Heartbreakers tour.

Regardless of how the album was billed, Benmont Tench told Radio.com that he regards it as a Hearbreakers record. Read more here.
