Legendary singer-songwriter and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Steve Perry makes his long-awaited return with Traces, his first new album in nearly a quarter of a century, which is released on Friday, 5 October on Concord/Virgin EMI.

The famed singer introduces Traces with lead track ‘No Erasin’’ and reassuringly greets fans with the opening line “I know it’s been a long time comin’.” You can listen to the track below. The track is an emotional homecoming, a familiar welcome from the iconic voice and writer of Journey’s timeless, global hits including ‘Don’t Stop Believin’,’ ‘Faithfully,’ and ‘Open Arms,’ as well as the significant solo success of ‘Oh Sherrie’ and ‘Foolish Heart.’

Perry says, “Putting 30 years into 10 songs has certainly been an emotional experience for me. I started writing and recording these songs with the creative freedom that I was the only one who would ever hear them. Along the way, I rediscovered my love for music. Each track represents traces of my past, but is also a hopeful look into the future. I invite you to listen with an open heart.”

Produced by Steve Perry alongside co-producer Thom Flowers, Traces is the artist’s most vulnerable and honest recording to date, balancing tremendous loss with enduring hope and beauty. The album is a collection of nine original tracks that encompass the spectrum of human emotion, and also features a reimagined cover of The Beatles’ ‘I Need You”. It is the work of an artist who has reconnected with his music in a new way.

Traces is out on 5 October. Scroll down to read the full tracklist and buy it here.
