Watch Spoon Tear Through Tom Petty’s ‘Breakdown,’ ‘A Face in the Crowd’

Tracks were recorded in Austin, Texas, earlier this year

Spoon has revealed two Tom Petty covers, recorded earlier this year at the Catacomb in Austin, Texas.

In the video above, Britt Daniel grooves through “Breakdown” from Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1976 debut album. They scale it back for Full Moon Fever‘s “A Face in the Crowd” (below), with Daniel shifting to acoustic guitar. Spoon performed “Breakdown” last fall for a virtual festival celebrating the late frontman’s birthday, while Daniel played both tracks in early March as a guest DJ on Sirius XM’s Tom Petty channel.
