Steve Perry releases another video, 'We're Still Here', from his upcoming album 'Traces'
Following the release of 'No Erasin' and 'No More Cying', the former Journey frontman's latest video is about living up with the new generation.
Steve Perry has dropped yet another video from his upcoming album, 'Traces'. Following the release of the video 'No More Crying' on September 5, the former 'Journey' frontman has now released the video for the third track on the album, 'We're Still Here'.
Perry's 'Traces' is probably one of the most anticipated albums of the year since this is the first time that the singer has released new music in nearly a quarter of a century.
'No More Crying' was more of an unconventional love song, regarding which Perry stated, "It has got many overtones and can be applied to so many different kinds of relationships, including my own relationship with past isolation."
Similarly, Perry seems to once again look back into his past but this time to celebrate "the continuity of life and a sense of camaraderie with a new generation”. Perry said of 'We’re Still Here' in a statement, “This is one of my most favorite songs on Traces because it speaks of the inclusiveness of us being together in the same place at the same time, and to not take lightly the fact that ‘we’re still here.'”
He had earlier released the video to the song 'No Erasin' on August 15 -- the first video that was launched from the album. Perry’s recent return to music was celebrated by both fans and the media alike. Within 24 hours of announcing 'Traces', 'No more crying' soared to #1 on Amazon’s overall best seller list and 'No Erasin’ topped iTunes as the #1 rock track. 'No Erasin’ debuted at #1 at Classic Rock radio and was the #2 most added track at Mainstream AC radio.
The album has been produced by Perry alongside co-producer Thom Flowers and features 10 tracks that balance Perry’s personal story of love and loss with hope and beauty.
Regarding the album, Perry said in a statement, "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.”
