Steve Perry has shared the official video for his Traces track ‘We’re Still Here.’ You can watch it above. While the former Journey vocalist released a trio of studio videos last year, the Myriam Santos-directed video for ‘We’re Still Here’ is Perry’s first official promo as a solo artist since ‘Missing You’ in 1994 – and his first overall since Journey’s ‘When You Love A Woman’ in 1996.

The ‘We’re Still Here’ promo sees Perry driving a black 70s Chevelle SS through the streets of Los Angeles – the location that inspired him to write the track with Canadian producer and songwriter Brian West. In the clip, the singer cruises by a series of iconic Hollywood locations as he watches the Hollywood streets come alive.

Of his nostalgic ballad ‘We’re Still Here’, Perry said in a statement: “Brian and I had just started writing the song and were sketching it out in the studio. When we broke for dinner I went to this place down the street – and that was the first time I’d been in Hollywood in a long time.

“There I was on Sunset Boulevard and Hollywood and Vine just walking around. I saw a whole new generation of 16 and 17-year olds running around just… alive. And through these kids I felt a kinship. We’re still here doing the same thing.”

Prior to his new promo, Perry released a deluxe edition of Traces which features all 10 tracks from the original record, plus five bonus songs from the studio sessions earlier in March.

As he told Rolling Stone last year, Perry was inspired to record Traces – his first release after a two-decade departure from the music world – after losing his girlfriend, Kellie Nash, to cancer in 2012. She turned to him near the end of her life and presented him with something very serious. “She said, ‘If something ever happens to me, I want you to make one promise,’” he said. “‘Promise me you won’t go back into isolation. If you do, I fear this would all be for naught.’”
