The Season is Steve Perry’s first ever holiday album, and features a joyous new rendition of the holiday staple “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.”
“I hope when people hear this record, they’re teleported in the same way I was when I recorded all these songs—I hope it brings them back to those golden moments with their loved ones and gives them that feeling of joy and connection and comfort that we all need so much.”
All 8 tracks on the record come straight from the heart as Steve hopes to send listeners to the place they find the most comfort during the holiday season, which, for Steve, is his grandmother’s home.
“When I was recording vocals for “I’ll be Home For Christmas”, as I was singing “Please have Snow and Mistletoe and Presents under the tree” … I was emotionally thrown into standing in my grandmother’s house staring through the door that I always hung Mistletoe and then I saw her beautiful Christmas tree in front of her living room window…I had to stop singing because it felt like I was really there…I was a bit stunned…Back Home for Christmas is where everyone wants to be!”
One of the most iconic voices in rock & roll history, Steve Perry has captivated generations with the sheer power of his range and extraordinary warmth of his tone.
