Long After Dark is the fifth album by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, released in November 1982 on Backstreet Records. Notable for the major MTV hit "You Got Lucky", the album was also the first to feature the late Howie Epstein on bass and harmony vocals. Epstein's vocals are evident throughout the album, most notably on "Change of Heart". From this point on Epstein's vocals became an integral part of the Heartbreakers' sound.
Two other singles from the album were released, "Change of Heart" and "Straight into Darkness," with the former joining "You Got Lucky" in the Billboard top 40. "Keeping Me Alive" was one of the outtakes from the sessions for the album. A Petty favorite, "Keeping Me Alive" was eventually released on Petty's 1995 box set compilation Playback.
