Former Lead Singer Of Journey On 180g Vinyl LP!
First New Album In 25 Years!
Former lead singer and songwriter of Journey and famed solo artist, his soaring vocals defined an era and continue to occupy a cherished place in pop culture. Now, Steve Perry makes his long-awaited return with TRACES, the legendary musician's first new album in 25 years.
Steve Perrys highly-anticipated album Traces, his first in nearly a quarter of a century, is available on 180g Vinyl LP via Fantasy Records. Co-produced by Perry alongside Thom Flowers, Traces is the legendary singer-songwriters most honest and vulnerable release to date, chronicling love, loss, and, ultimately, hope. The album features previously released tracks "No More Cryin," "No Erasin," and "Were Still Here," as well as a beautifully reimagined cover of The Beatles "I Need You".
Perry sat with NPRs All Things Considered to discuss his return to music, confiding "My new life is going to be about recording anything that comes to my heart because Ive rediscovered the passion for music and its something I dont want to let go of ever again."
Perrys eagerly-awaited return to music has been celebrated by fans and critics alike, with Entertainment Weekly hailing "the return of one of rocks most beloved voices," Yahoo proclaiming "Perrys long-awaited return to music is a cause for celebration," and Forbes exclaiming "for all of music it is damn good to have the Steve Perry back." Traces has received critical acclaim with USA Today highlighting it as one of "10 Albums You Need To Hear This Fall," and Newsday declaring "The well-crafted, eclectic songs on "Traces" all make the most of Perrys voice, whether its the blues-tinged "No More Cryin," or the gorgeous ballad "We Fly."
Ultimate Classic Rock asserts "You Want Steve Perry to be Steve Perry, if you were ever a fan. And Traces delivers," and The Associated Press pronounces, "Breaking his long silence in such a memorable way, "Traces" shows that for Perry returning to music was about much more than keeping his word."
