Hypnotic Eye is the latest effort from the legendary Tom Petty and although it took 3 years for him and the Heartbreakers to write and record the material, interestingly enough, the album is poised to to hit #1 on the Billboard charts – unbelievably, the first time in Petty’s lengthy and legendary career.
Petty and the Heartbreakers were on Jimmy Kimmel Live to celebrate the release of the new album. Check out this incredible live footage of “Forgotten Man,” one of the singles off the new album. As you can tell, the song is prototypical Petty – straightforward rock that owes a great debt to the blues. And with a title of “Forgotten Man,” the song naturally evokes the sense of being forlorn and forgotten.
