180 Gram Vinyl Record
New solo album from the former Journey lead singer!
Former lead singer and songwriter of Journey, and a famed solo artist, Steve Perry's soaring vocals defined an era and continue to occupy a cherished place in pop culture. Now, Perry makes his long-awaited return with Traces, the legendary musician's first new album in 25 years.
Last year, Perry told ABC Radio that his next solo album was inspired by a personal tragedy. He explained: "I met someone and I feel in love with this person. And I lost this person to breast cancer four years ago. In the midst of that, I had written some songs, and before I met her, I had sketched some. And so about a year ago, I started recording."
He continued: "Basically the record is an emotional expression, and a reason to make one. It's been a real cathartic experience going back to that emotional place that I thought I would never go back to. And we really have been doing our very best to capture what I think are some timeless songs."
Perry last released a solo album in 1994. That effort, For The Love Of Strange Medicine, was certified gold in the U.S. for sales in excess of half a million copies.
Perry's final full concert with Journey took place in early 1987. He later rejoined his bandmates for a brief performance in 1991 to honor late concert promoter Bill Graham. He also appeared with Journey when they received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame in 2005.
The singer was inducted, alongside his old band, at the 2017 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame ceremony in Brooklyn, New York.
