Over the course of the last few days – there have been hints that former Journey front man – Steve Perry – was up to something. For the last 20 odd years – he has been very, very reclusive. That all changed earlier this year when he showed up to be inducted into the Rock Hall with his bandmates from Journey – our first sign that maybe he was ready to start stepping out on stage again.

Still – since then, sightings have been scarce then the other night – he shows up on a live broadcast of American Idol – still no singing but there he was – laughing, smiling – add in the tweets and other social media happenings – the gear up to this release has been happening for about a week.

So today we get the announcment that a new song is dropping and – a new album as well.

First up – let’s check out the new song.  Here’s No Erasin’.

That voice is still there – and so good to hear it again.

The new album is titled TRACES. 10 tracks of new Perry.  A great day indeed!

The new album will hit on Oct. 5th.

Let’s hope a tour is not far behind.
