By: Edward Pevos

Steve Perry fans rejoice! The former lead singer of Journey is coming out with a new album and he just released its first single.

To say this is long-awaited is an understatement. The Rock and roll Hall of Famer hasn’t released a new album since 1994. “Traces” will drop on Friday, October 5, 2018 on Fantasy Records.

The lead track, “No Erasin'” greets fans with the opening line “I know it’s been a long time comin’.” The song is now available for purchase on iTunes. The full album is available for pre-order.

“Putting 30 years into 10 songs has certainly been an emotional experience for me,” said Perry. “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.”

Perry produced the album along with Thom Flowers. The album features nine original tracks and a cover of The Beatles’ “I Need You.” Here is the full track listing:

• 1. No Erasin’

• 2. We’re Still Here

• 3. Most Of All

• 4. No More Cryin’

• 5. In The Rain

• 6. Sun Shines Gray

• 7. You Belong To Me

• 8. Easy To Love

• 9. I Need You

• 10. We Fly
