Tom Petty's family have shared a demo recording of the rock legend's 1994 single "You Don't Know How It Feels" from the album Wildflowers.

Adria Petty, one of Petty's daughters unearthed this previously unheard version of the song while going through his archives.

"I thought, 'What a weird song to pick as the single, of all those songs,'" Adria Petty told Rolling Stone. "They had an album of amazing songs. But there's something about it that makes you feel at ease — like you belong."

"The idea of 'you don't know how it feels to be me' — people can identify with that feeling," she added. "And 'roll another joint' is saying, 'Tune out the noise for a second because there's so much of it.' And that felt appropriate now."

"You Don't Know How It Feels" peaked at No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100 and also reached No. 1 on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart.
