Caamp Shares Tom Petty Cover ‘Square One’


Caamp shared a cover of Tom Petty’s “Square One.” The Ohio trio initially conceived the tribute for SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio on what would have been the late great singer-songwriter’s 70th birthday on October 20, 2020.

“Square One” originally appeared on the soundtrack for the 2005 film Elizabethtown and garnered Petty a Grammy nomination. Tom later included it on his 2006 album Highway Companion. Produced by Petty’s Traveling Wilburys band mate Jeff Lynne, the LP was Tom’s third and final solo album.

“The album Highway Companion just felt like an album Tom had always wanted to make,” Caamp’s Evan Westfall said in a statement. “It seemed authentic and true to where he’s from and that’s a feeling we’ve been trying to encapsulate in our music. ‘Square One’ is a song that we all connected with instantly on that album. That song/album is a huge inspiration.”
