Angel Dream (Songs and Music from the Motion Picture “She’s The One”), originally released by Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers in 1996 as the companion album to the romantic comedy starring Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, will be revisited to commemorate its 25th anniversary on July 2.

Officially detailed on Thursday, the newly remixed, remastered and reimagined edition of the record — one of Petty‘s few movie soundtracks he worked on in his career — was previewed with “Angel Dream (No. 2),” which premiered on Thursday:

Some pertinent quotes about the release, as featured on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio on Thursday from Petty’s daughter, Adria, his wife Dana, engineer/co-producer Ryan Ulyate and Heartbreaker Benmont Tench:

“‘She’s The One’ was originally a great way to include some of the songs that didn’t make it on to Wildflowers, but it has its own thing to it, its own charm, and putting it out now in a restructured form makes for a sweet little treat. At the time in the studio, it was fun working as a band to improvise the scoring cues for the movie rather than playing to preset click tracks and a written score. And It was interesting to try to cut covers of others’ songs for a record, instead of learning covers just for live shows. We got a nice vibey version of Beck’s song and I’ve always loved Lucinda’s song ‘Change the Locks,’ so I was more than happy to cut it with our band. Oh, and this album has ‘Angel Dream’ on it, one of the loveliest songs Tom ever wrote.”—Benmont Tench

“There’s some cool stuff on this record that has never come out before. I especially love the JJ Cale song ‘13 Days.’ We had a lot of fun playing that song live and it’s great to have a recording of it from the studio. ‘Supernatural Radio’ is extended with some great jamming interplay within the band, which I’m very proud of. The Heartbreakers could be really amazing and spontaneous. I hope you enjoy these little gems as much as I do.”—Mike Campbell

“It seemed like we approached the whole thing with a very spontaneous mood. I like things that way, I don’t—I don’t like to over-plan too much. It was terrific fun, we had a great time doing it.”—Tom Petty (from the 1996 “She’s The One” EPK video interview)

“These songs are extremely special. I am grateful this record is getting the recognition it deserves. The remix Ryan Ulyate did sounds amazing, and the unreleased gems are a lovely bonus. Annakim, Adria, and I took a lot of time finding artwork that reflects the mood of the album. I think we finally achieved that with Alia Penner’s work. It is surreal and beautiful, just like life during that time.”—Dana Petty

And some additional details about the material included in the reissue:

Ryan Ulyate remixed the audio for the reissue and worked with Tom on the mixes before his passing. The song selection was designed to work as a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers album rather than a film soundtrack, and four unreleased tracks were added —“One of Life’s Little Mysteries” (written by Tom), “Thirteen Days” (JJ Cale cover), “105 Degrees” (another Tom original), and “French Disconnection” (an instrumental in the same vein as the instrumentals on the original album). An extended version of “Supernatural Radio” is also included.
