In the fall of 2018, Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Steve Perry made his long-awaited return with the release of TRACES, the legendary musician’s first new album in 25 years. The album’s personal expression of love, inspiration and renewal resonated with both critics and fans around the world, thrilled to have their ‘voice of a generation’ making new music once again.

Now, on TRACES (Alternative Versions & Sketches) due December 4th, 2020 via Fantasy Records, Perry revisits several of his favorite tracks, stripping away the grand production touches, taking the songs down to their essence. Presented acoustic and raw, (including some in sketch form) tracks like “Sun Shines Gray,” “No Erasin’,” “No More Cryin’,” and “Most Of All” take on new and richer meaning. In this setting, Perry’s iconic soulful voice glides out-front vibrant, clear and warm while the lyrics take on greater significance as well, even more intimate than before.

Produced by Perry and his longtime collaborator and friend, Thom Flowers, TRACES (Alternative Versions & Sketches) offers a fascinating glimpse into Steve’s creative process and a deeper understanding into an already treasured album.

When writing these songs, the original inspiration is always my first compass – where the songs should go. Alternate Versions & Sketches is exactly that, and I’m very excited to have you hear the original seeds of these songs.
