Steve Perry To Release New Solo Album ‘Traces’ In October

According to Amazon, former Jorney singer Steve Perry will release a new solo album titled “Traces” on October 5.

Perry apparently teased his return to activity yesterday by launching what appears to be an official web site and social media accounts. The initial posting on the sites contained a simple message: “I know it’s been a long time comin’.”

“Traces” track listing, according to Amazon:

01. No Erasin’
02. We’re Still Here
03. Most Of All
04. No More Cryin’
05. In The Rain
06. Sun Shines Gray
07. You Belong To Me
08. Easy To Love
09. I Need You
10. We Fly

It has been reported that Perry will appear on the October 7 edition of “CBS Sunday Morning”, presumably to promote his new solo disc and discuss his plans for the future.

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.
