The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and longtime backing band recently announced the upcoming release of their 13th studio collaboration along with news of a 30-city support tour of North America.
In a news release posted to his official website on June 3 at TomPetty.com, the 'Free Fallin' hitmaker revealed the album's eye-boggling artwork.

'Hypnotic Eye' hits shelves on July 29 and will be released in digital, vinyl and Blu-ray audio editions, as well as on CD. Vinyl lovers can purchase the album either as a single disc or as double album that includes an additional track. Fans who preorder the release on iTunes and Amazon beginning June 3 will receive an instant download of the first of several tracks from the album.
