Steve Perry releases new single 'No More Crying' from new album 'Traces'
After more than a decade one of the last artists of Rock has released a new album, and it is just as good as the old.
Following the release of his first new music in nearly a quarter of a century, iconic singer-songwriter Steve Perry has offered another glimpse into his highly-anticipated album 'Traces,' sharing the brand-new single 'No More Cryin’.
Co-written by Perry and Dan Wilson (Semisonic, Adele), the track is a soulful reflection on isolation and love. Perry states, "'No More Cryin’ is a love song, but not in the way you would think. It starts in one place and builds and lands somewhere entirely different. It has got many overtones and can be applied to so many different kinds of relationships, including my own relationship with past isolation."
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.
Of the track’s opening line, “I know it’s been a long time coming” Entertainment Weekly pronounced, “It is a fitting line for the return of one of rock’s most beloved voices,” and Stereogum proclaimed, “The song turns out to be a big and totally unashamed studio-rocker. It’s mostly powered by Perry’s voice, which remains magnificent, and by a majestic chorus that would sound totally at home on classic-rock radio.” The studio performance video for the track has now amassed over 2 million views, with Grammy.com declaring, “Perry sings passionately into the microphone and confidently taking center stage again; this time with a renewed energy and a new story to tell.”
Traces was produced by Perry alongside co-producer Thom Flowers and feature 10 tracks that balance Perry’s personal story of love and loss with hope and beauty. Traces will be released globally Friday, October 5, 2018, on Fantasy Records and is available now for pre-order on CD, digital download and 180-gram vinyl here. Signed and exclusive bundles can be found here. Both 'No Erasin' and 'No More Cryin' can be downloaded instantly upon pre-order.
